Whoever said shipping containers are destined for the trash probably wasn’t thinking hard enough. What we’ve got here is a perfectly great way to use a shipping container to make evenings worthwhile! Say hello to the Container Bar in Austin, Texas, a bar made from recycled shipping containers by North Arrow Studio and with Hendley | Knowles Design Studio! The project took three years to complete and is now one of the best places in Austin to grab a frothy glass full of goodness.
To build the bar, the architects and engineers working on this project simply stacked them one over the other, like LEGO pieces. With big glass windows that offer cheerful views of the world outside, the Container Bar is an inspiration for all those who can’t think beyond bricks and concrete.
