Container City, Trinity, Buoy Wharf, Docklands

Containers have long held an  attraction for designers as the  ultimate off-the-shelf industrialised,  transport ready, stackable house  component. They are particularly  attractive in short term  developments because they  can be picked up and moved  elsewhere when the term comes to  an end. All they need are proper  doors and windows, fitting out with  plumbing and electrics and, hey  presto, low-cost hi-tech cool homes  for all.

Container City is the brainchild of  Eric Reynolds, Managing Director of  Urban Space Management who was  looking for a way to address the  problem of providing space at a construction cost low enough to ensure affordable rents for artists and creative startup businesses.

Constructed from redundant shipping  containers the first phase, completed  in 2001 was originally three stories  high and provided 12 work studios.  In 2003 a further floor was added  providing 3 additional live/work  apartments.

The containers were pre-fabricated  off-site and upgraded as necessary  to provide the desired thermal and  acoustic performance standards and  to meet local building regulations.
