Shipping Container Conversion:
Shipping container conversion is becoming more popular these days. People are beginning to see that instead of just allowing them rot away in the ports or wharfs, you can easily convert them into just about anything you want.
A good example of a successful shipping container conversion is the shipping container kiosk in Karanga Plaza, Wynard Wharf, Auckland, NZ.
Also, known as the Wynard Quarter Shipping Container Kiosk, the shipping container conversion was done by simply piling up 9 shipping containers atop one another, installing entertainment gadgets and having waterfront tour guides and experts.
This instantly turned the shipping container kiosk into a favourite spot for tourists, sightseers and visitors.
The result of the shipping container conversion was an impressive landmark which also houses an impressive glowing light box that can be seen kilometers away, used as a billboard of sorts and a massive screen for both video screening and presentations.
