Description of Beautiful Container Buildings:

There are many beautiful container buildings all over the world.

All of these beautiful container buildings tend to have one or more things in common: Reduced energy consumption, the use of recycled or prefabricated shipping containers among other things.

One of such beautiful container buildings is The Moderne Sales Centre in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

This amazingly innovative container building  is a temporary building located on the Park East Corridor.  The current smaller Moderne Sales Centre actually marks the spot of the main building 30 storey itself when construction starts.

To build the temporary structure, 5 recycled shipping containers were used. The first 4 were joined together to make the main office and room vignettes while the fifth container was positioned on top of the joined 4 containers and is fitted with “The Moderne” signage.

Bottom line, the last container acts as a billboard to advertise the structure/building.

The room vignettes were meant to help prospects and potential buyers or renters experience the ambience or get the taste of what the interior of the building will look like after the main building is completed.

Benefits of Beautiful Container Buildings:

Beautiful container buildings can be high end, medium class or low end. It all depends on what your current needs are.

The good thing about most Container buildings is that constructing them with all the bells and whistles most times costs far less than traditional buildings without the bells and whistles.

Most Container buildings are also energy efficient, have great designs, are easily affordable, and can be easily relocated from one location to the other.

They also serve as excellent comfortable temporary dwellings that you can put up whilst planning for the or waiting for main building.

They also make for good emergency housing and accommodation.

Although this 30 storey building costs a lot more, people with a low budget can get beautiful container buildings with basic amenities for $20,000-$30,000.
