What would you do with a one-trip 20' container? We have some great customers who have taken 20' (and in some cases 40') containers and created something much bigger than a box. We are showcasing some of the fun stuff we've been a part of or at least supplied containers today.
Super Cubes worked with Matter last year to create some unique spaces at their gala. We created a red carpet entry where everyone walked through container to come into the Sun Country hangar. We created a virtual reality booth where attendees could tour hospitals created by Matter (and see containers shipped from Minneapolis to the hospitals). We used 20' containers to create a stage along with the nose of a Sun Country plane! Click here to read more about it.
We worked with SW Living in Florida. They are creating great off-the-grid living spaces out of containers. Pictured below is their prototype. To find out more about them, click here.
While containers are great for storage, they are quite literally blank canvases The one pictured below features a mural designed by a local high schooler. Read more about that here. We also had a customer camouflage theirs to fit into their surroundings.
We have had customers turn containers into garden shed. We had a farm add on storage for pipes and other materials that can be accessed directly from the barn.
One Super Cubes customer partially buried a 20' container into a hill. It provides great storage and is safe from storms.
Alchemy Architects in St Paul took a Super Cubes container and converted it into an off-the-grid, stand-alone, 20' hotel room. Super Cubes helped with the big window next to the bed and the utility closet opening. They did an amazing job designing the space to make use of every square inch an beautiful materials to finish it off. The container made the rounds last year at various festivals and fairs. This summer, you can book a stay in it through AirBnB. To read more about it, click here for the container's website and here for the AirBnB listing.
Super Cubes was also involved with a shrimp farm in Las Vegas. Yes, you read that right. Shrimp in the desert outside of Las Vegas. It was to bring sustainable, locally-sourced shrimp to a market that had very high demand. Here is a link to our blog on that one too. Although they did use 40's for this project, it seemed too fun to leave out.
One last 40' project was an 8-container home in St Charles. We have so many pictures of this gorgeous home, you really just need to visit our blog devoted entirely to it. Click here to check that out.
So what would you do with a container? What is holding you back from doing something with one?
