eligostudio stacks shipping containers for agriculture company headquarters in florida

milan-based furniture & interior design company eligostudio has completed the headquarters of agriculture company cultiva in the north of florida, built entirely out of shipping containers. the three-story-high structure comprises units assembled and disassembled in italy in order to deal with overseas shipping, while all spaces and finishes in the project follow the rough, industrial aesthetics of containers.

founded in 2011 in milan by alberto nespoli and domenico rocca, eligostudio develops projects that combine the experience of italian timeless techniques with the design of new contemporary spaces. for the headquarters of cultiva, a worldwide leader in the fresh-cut market, who has built the first protected baby leaf production facility on the american east coast, the studio has developed a three-story building using only shipping containers. the different units slide over each other, in order to create rooms and terraces, completely permeable thanks to wide windows and sliding doors.
