19 Shipping Containers Form an Airy, Artsy New Restaurant

Yes, we've ranted about shipping container architecture going too far, this fresh example in Asheville, North Carolina comes off smart and attractive. Completed by local firm Form & Function Architecture, the 6,000-square-foot new restaurant was entirely built from 19 reclaimed shipping containers and revitalizes a former dumping ground situated between a bridge and railway.

The interior, arguably more interesting than the uniformly painted red exterior, is flushed in light, as a corridor of bottomless containers line the upper levels. The three-story building is also rich in furniture and murals done by locals. Dwell has the details and more photos.
