Recently we featured a container clinic under construction by Stack Design Build, and now, the same firm is building a unique container office space on an infill lot in Providence, Rhode Island. Jay Cox-Chapman of Stack DB was kind enough to send us this time-lapse video taken over five days showing the assembly of 32 recycled containers into an office space.
The 11,000 square-foot space, Box Office 460, should be complete in the late spring 2010 and leasing interest has been strong. Box Office 460 was designed by Joe Haskett of Distill Studio and developed by Truth Box, Inc.
Planned environmental aspects of the project, in addition to using recycled steel in the form of containers, include a high performance building envelope, ultra-efficient HVAC, energy recovery ventilation, site design to reduce stormwater runoff, and daylight sensing light fixtures.
The Box Office will have 12 office/studio spaces with green lease incentives available for tenants to help promote energy conservation. Can't wait to see the completed project.
