The Advantages of Shipping Container Architecture.
Strong and Sturdy.
The decision to build a shopping mall out of container boxes is based on practicality and innovation.
Built to withstand shipment, storage and handling of heavy loads, shipping containers are very durable and possess a structural integrity that make surprisingly good materials to construct buildings from.
Versatile and Economical.
While thermal insulation is an obvious issue, shipping container architecture boasts a number of logistical benefits; they are relatively easy to stack and transport, are found everywhere in the world, and are modular making them easy to scale up – both horizontally and vertically.
And while a lot more insulation is needed to keep the metal boxes from heating up to Malaysia’s hot, hot ambient temperature, it gives the interior designers some unexpected room to flex their creativity in a very practical way. From aluminium composite panels to wooden roofs and flooring, clever and ingenious use of materials can turn an apparent problem into a beautiful opportunity!
