A New Retail Space

We're in a time where not only are people thinking outside the box, but designers and architects are finding new ways to use the box itself.

Retail and hospitality spaces in particular are coming up with new and inventive ways to create a space for business. Take the shipping container for example.

 

There are speces that have been created with anywhere from 1 to multiple containers. This 450sqft Starbucks Drive-Thru for example, is made up of four remodeled shipping containers. It's bold, different, and will definately peek curiosity to any passerby.

 

Then there's the concept of small gorcery stores made from one shipping container. Something like this would be perfect in small towns, or for local businesses. 

 

What better use for a shipping container than a big wearhouse, or well known retail store like Puma. Bold, spacious, creative, and creates a unique indoor/outdoor shoping experience on three different levels.

 

Take the facade of the Prahran Hotel. It is made out of large water pipes. Something that is guarenteed to draw your attention, and create a unique experience from the inside and out.

 

The pipes look into the restaurants dining space, and serve as comfortable booths. That is sure to be a new and fun experience you would never have thought to happen.

 

And then there is the simple task of finding a new way to design a space with the same materials. The world is always evolving, and places are being designed to open the mind, peek curiosity, and surprise you, like this retail below.

Open and spacious layout, creating a fun and exciting retail experience.

 

Wood is constantly seen in retail spaces, but not like this. It's used to create different shapes, and turn this retail space in Japan into something like a cave.

Architecture and design continues to evolve and break new ground, and it is exciting to see spaces like the ones above come to life, especially when the design is something that was once thought impossible.

    It is important to be aware that London extensions naturally have a premium when compared to the rest of the UK. This is due to higher labour and material costs, and more constricted construction sites.
