Containers are becoming a more common office for more and more workers.  But we mostly think about those offices on jobsite or other places where the offices are mobile.  Here are 2 examples of some more unusual offices:

1)       Mobile rally car shop and mobile team headquarters.  The teams for the World Rally Championship use shipping containers as their shops, as well as other items they need for their hospitality teams when they get to their location.  They transport their marketing materials so they can create their own unique space at the rallies.

Each team has their own area which can move with them throughout the season.

2)      Theaters.  We have not one, but two examples of using containers as theaters.

USA’s Character Project has traveling storage containers that are modified to be a full movie theaters that are customized to fit the films they are showing.  They are screening 8 original short films in various cities throughout the country.

Cardiff is getting its own 40’ storage container theater for the play The Container.  It is a play that explores the journey of Somali and Afganistani refugees coming to the UK for asylum.  The container-theater is one component in bringing the story home to theatergoers.

3)      Radio station studio.  Radio Free Libya in Masrata has outfitted a container as a studio for guests who cannot come to the radio station’s offices for security reasons.

Containers are a great option for any mobile space.  They can be modified easily, moved easily and are flexible enough to turn into whatever you can imagine.
