Description: Tucked away in New York City, is this amazing studio space, called Container Studio. On a budget of $60,000.00, Andrea Shapiro (Artist & DJ), along with her Architect, created an inviting and reflective studio space out of placing two shipping containers on top of the foundation walls, within which a basement was created. In order to provide access to the lower level, the steel flooring was removed to connect to the basement space. It is the coolest art studio going around!
Number of Shipping Containers Used: Two!
Credits to: Andrea Shapiro
Benefits: No outstanding benefits noted however proof that you can even put shipping containers to use in a city like the Big Apple! Also, the fact that some of the containers have been removed, is a huge contributing factor to the overall look!
