The Estate Office Shoreditch has opened ContainerVille, a collection of 30 shipping containers that have been upcycled to create affordable workspaces for startup businesses.
Located on the south bank of Regent’s Canal, the containers can comfortably accommodate four desks, and feature branding by OneAnother and LeGun, a local design agency and art collective, respectively.
ContainerVille charges £1200 per container per month or £320 for an individual desk, and overheads are minimal. The workspaces are geared towards startups and small businesses, with the overall aim of creating a community of like-minded creatives. The shared outdoor area overlooking the canal and picnic-bench seating is designed to encourage collaboration and integration.
