Boxman Studios [1] was inspired to work with shipping containers during the economic downturn of 2008. They salvaged [2] and bought decommissioned containers from old shipping and storage yards and customized [3] them to fit a wide range of applications. Fast-forward to present day and cargotecture [4] has caught on as an innovative new form of architecture – and shipping container projects are popping up across the US and around the world.

Boxman Studios [1]‘ growth has allowed the company to jump into more urban infrastructure projects from the private housing realm. The studio‚Äôs offices are moving into a 65,000 square-foot-space in Charlotte, North Carolina that includes areas for design, manufacturing, storage, and logistics. The firm’s upcoming projects include pop-up [5] and permanent additions for clients such as Nike, Google and Whole Foods.
