Containers in the Wild North West 2015

25 03 2015

Been doing a bit of creative work on the regeneration side in the North West – This is a cheap way to provide retail units quickly and economically in a run down area in Liverpool 8 – Toxteth . Great thing about a container is that comes in fixed sizes and can be laid out on a brownfield gap site in a designed manner to produce new community space and help reinvigorate tired areas of the country where low cost is everything and can act as a catalyst for local regeneration.

The rents are geared up to be affordable to the local community as retail space – in future residential versions of this may be considered.

Again these design exercises are made for sketch-up as the models of containers exist up there on the internet – Its how you lay them out is the clever bit – complete with hard landscape  , street furniture and lighting – This is not like BOXPARK in London it lower cost than that.
