Cost To Build Shipping Container Restaurant,As we are all aware sustainability is a key watchword within the construction industry and one of the latest trends in sustainable building design is the clever use of shipping containers. Built from steel and durable material they are designed to be tough enough to withstand the hazards of shipping as well as the loading by crane. But what happens to the discarded containers? Answer- they can be recycled as ready made building blocks for constructing working and living spaces including restaurants. first class example of this use.
Working closely again with Softroom Architects, we had to overcome many logistical challenges – lifting and manoeuvring the containers into place by the use of a massive crane and the complicated structural implications to enable one of the containers to be cantilevered out over the eastern entrance to provide a canopy. Inside, the front and back containers are separated by a glazed link, which floods the space with natural light. Each of the containers has then been given its own character with a mix of bespoke, new and reclaimed furniture and material and distinct lighting scenes
Inside the shipping container conversion, staff prepare and serve food. The compact layout includes a grill, electric fryer, milkshake maker, draught beer taps and two refrigerators – and there’s still enough space for a team of five to work.
An aperture was cut on the front wall of the container to create an additional serving hatch so that food orders can be taken from the side of the converted shipping container and then served to customers from the end near the seating area.
