Shipping Container Tourism: Bayside Marina Hotel
Categories: Building Methods
Shipping containers are a great recycleable solution for building a home. However, they can also serve as an office, a shop and even as a hotel. Take a look at the Bayside Marina Hotel, by Yasutaka Yoshimura Architects, in Kanagawa, Japan – It consists of 31 hotel guest rooms, which are made from 40 ft. steel shipping containers.
In Japan the cost of labor and building material are quite expensive. The affordable solution is to import the buildings themselves, not the building material, resulting in low-cost transportation and a short period of construction.
