Our new project is to create a co-working office space in shipping containers.

We were suggested places to look at while in London on our trip and places around Sheffield.

*Think outside the box*

Maybe consider putting plants into the space in creative ways.

Materials to look into:

  • Polycarbonate
  • Plastics
  • Mdf
  • PEG board
  • Acoustic panelling
  • Steel
  • Copper
  • Corrugated steel
  • Aluminium
  • Glass (mirrored and coloured)
  • Vinyl
  • Tiles
  • Ls
  • Fabric
  • Cardboard

Shipping containers:

Look at pros and cons of them

How can shipping containers be used?

  • Retail
  • Leisure
  • Office

Things to consider:

  • Minimum of 1-2 shipping containers
  • Have space for at least three users
  • Play with flexibility-make good use of the space
  • maximise every square meter
  • Use one or two materials only

Your co-working (shared working environment) space needs:

  • Breakout space-chill area
  • Desk space- change it up a bit
  • Meeting area
  • Storage

While on the London trip things to look out for:

  • Materials
  • Lighting
  • Technology
  • Furniture
  • Graphics
  • Flooring
  • Ceiling
  • Walls
  • Signage

Take photos of these things that inspire you!
