Stylish storage solution

We built a ready-to-use, year-round storage space out of a 6-meter shipping container.

Naturally, the most important thing when it comes to a storage unit is functionality.

In this case, it meant mounting three sturdy shelve units inside the container so that they wouldn’t budge during transport or fall over when the customer is filling the shelves. We also equipped the container with a separate access door so that the door could be opened using only one hand while carrying a storage box in the other.

This storage unit was transported to a customer in Finland for year-round use. This, in turn, meant that the container would have to be insulated and have a heater inside to reassure steady temperatures during the cold winter months. A small but significant detail we also added is the outdoor light installed right above the access door, which will help people to navigate their way to the storage unit.

Simple ideas often deliver the best outcome. We do shipping container modifications from simple changes to complex modifications. CONTACT US and let’s design your next container space together.
