These fantastic shipping container facilities are a product of combining surfing activities, the natural environment and Modern Urbanism Architecture. Designed by Stefan Beese of RE:BE Design during the 2011 Quicksilver NY PRO Surf event, these excellent shipping container ideas were meant to bring great architecture closer to the beach.
As Production Designer, Stefan’s shipping container ideas included finding a way to fuse the beach, the city and environment, thus creating a medley of unique, beautiful memories, sounds and experiences for the event’s attendees. He wanted the shipping container buildings to be wildly different from the standard white tent tops that are often seen at surfing events.
All the containers were pre-built and fitted with doors and windows. Because shipping container buildings have such “harsh” exteriors, Stefan decided to soften the look and experience by adding a softer interior that complements the exterior perfectly. This combination with the natural environment, helped create a medley of pleasant experiences.
The shipping container buildings seemed harsh, yet soft and appealing at the same time. The floors of the shipping container buildings were fitted with rattan mats or wooden floors, depending on the room or space.
To ensure that the effect of the house was amazing, he included rock gardens, oversize nature prints of waves, large scale driftwood mobiles and a few other natural items.
These excellent shipping container ideas were powerful in its effect and the structure served as both leisure building and storage facility for items and equipments used during the events.
