DockLounge is made-up of two 40-foot WhiteCrate containers and one Hi-cube 40-foot WhiteCrate container that were joined together after the sides were removed to form a spacious room. The site can host around 80 guests, all milling around a central log burner. The interiors were decorated throughout by Fluid bars, who made the space look a bit like a warm ski-lodge.

After their previous ideas for exhibition spaces [4] and their part in the recent unveiling of Nissan LEAF [5], the designers at WhiteCircle [6] have shown just how much capacity their converted crates have. For more information about the WhiteCrates concept, take a look at their official website, and watch this space for further news from the team!
