At Long Last, Somebody Built a Shipping Container Bar

New, 4 comments

In past years, ever-so-trendy shipping containers have lent their heft and industrial-chic vibe to such projects as spas, mansions, and even "artist communes." The Container Bar in Austin, Texas, though, marks the first-ever bar to be made entirely from repurposed cargo containers. Designed in collaboration between the Austin-based North Arrow Studio and Hendley | Knowles Design Studio, the structure has a stacked, rectangular layout, with an open-air courtyard in the middle and an extra long, double-height bar. A large, corrugated roof propped up on support beams covers the entire space, while indoor corridors offer a bit of stylish additional seating. Check out a couple more shots of the booziest shipping container project yet, below:
