Bridget Dunlap, a local entrepreneur, has opened up a new type of watering hole in Texas. With the help of North Arrow Studios the bar stands at double height with 8,000 square foot of spacing and is testament to show how well suited containers are in commercial space.
The bar is built from seven separate containers that are stacked on top of one another creating a unique and exciting structure. The metallic outer walls add undeniable character and the inside has been transformed, making it easy to forget the original purpose of the containers.
Francisco Arrendondo, the project manager, comments on the positives of using containers in construction. He states that they’re ‘inherently efficient constructions … a three dimensional structural truss’, perfect for commercial projects such as this.
This project and others like it have been termed ‘upcycling’. Here the main objective is to take an object away from its original purpose and changing it to increase its value.
Shanghai Metal Corporation currently provides a variety of new shipping containers that can be custom tailored based on customer requests. We hope that inspiring design like the Container Bar will encourage all to explore their own ideas for shipping container use.
