in a big hall of 4000 sqm, belgian designers five AM placed 13 second hand shipping containers to create an office space for drukta & formail, two printing companies. the concept was to create a certain experience for every visitor/user, linking the offices between the workshop so the bosses can see their employees, and the visitors can explore the huge machinery. three containers pop out of the building to get as much natural light as possible, both located through the existing loading docks.
