Not only are shipping containers used for storing and transporting goods worldwide, but they are also increasingly adopted as alternative building structures to conventional structures. The utility of container units in architectural applications is underlined by their adequate availability and inherent qualities. Therefore, architects use steel boxes to build homes, small apartments, dormitories, offices, and hotels. Let’s explore 4 fascinating container hotels that give guests memorable experiences.
Situated in the heart of the coastal town of Fremantle, Australia, the Hougoumont is a boutique hotel that is constructed out of recycled container units. This container hotel gives guests the enjoyment of marine neighborhoods. The Hougoumont combines the old-time beauty of a 1901 traditional building structure with industrial container-based structures. The fuse allows guests to enjoy the memory of past Fremantle and the contemporary container-based design.
