The allure and appeal of shipping containers is great, especially with the modularity of these reusable metal structures. Gifu, Japan is home to an office that is crafted of these containers in such a way that you can’t really be sure of whether they are coming, going, or already there to stay.
The Sugoroku Office appears to be a construction site, with 8 modules neatly stacked atop one another in a cube like situation. The notch out at the top serves for a small, semi private balcony. Daiken Met Architects crafted the office within a steel frame where the sections are easily taken apart and moved if need be. The exterior of the containers are almost untouched, with orange construction netting utilized for railing and visual interest.
