Amsterdam Office Made From Shipping Pallets

Need to upgrade your interiors? Shipping pallets are low cost ways to build walls, desks, tables, shelves and seating. Take it from Most Architecture who designed the interiors for Brandbase, an advertising agency in Amsterdam. The economical, sustainable and creative office was built using 270 shipping pallets.

Shipping Pallet Emergency Shelter

New York firm I-Beam Design was working on a design for emergency housing when they thought about using shipping pallets. Found anywhere around the world, they are a ubiquitous building block and set about to come up with an easy to build shelter. The Pallet House shelter can be built with only basic tools in about a day and can be upgraded over time with insulation and other materials for more permanent housing.

Jellyfish Theatre in London

Shipping pallets are a great and inexpensive building block for temporary structures. As these do not need to stand the test of time, the pallets can be put up quickly to form basic structures like this theatre in London. The Jellyfish Theatre was up and running during the summer of 2010 and could seat 120 people for its performances.
