Gifu-based Daiken-Met Architects decided to build their own office and obtained a short-term rental contract for a small parcel of land where they could set up their temporary office.
The Sugoroku Office is built from seven stacked shipping containers on three levels with two spaces left open for balconies, the frame and containers can easily be dismantled, removed and rebuilt whenever necessary.
The interiors of the containers are finished with used plywood or packing bands from a construction site, the white walls and light, wooden textured floors add a bit of a natural feeling to the space.
Inspiration from architect:
Our office incorporating the used container to steel frame that can be dismantled relocation is located on top of the simple foundation. The proposed open spaces is by relocation possible architectural unit rather than in the parking lot, to be diverted to place where people and things moving.
