LAB5's shipping container architecture using swedish philosophy

skanska is a swedish developer that cares for each and every employee in their company. due to this fact, the developers have hired LAB5 architects to design the interior of their first container that is standing at the working site of an ongoing construction located in budapest, hungary. this is not only the reception waiting for guests, but also a way of saying good morning to all employees arriving.

hungarian based LAB5 has proposed the shipping container prototype with a stylish interior. being the first of its kind, the design team has customized the interior space using swedish philosophy.

LAB5 has used the materials that are commonly found in the construction site, and the atmosphere which can be seen in a nordic public building. the walls are covered with bituminous corrugated roof-sheets, painted in a pale pistachio color. the counter and the wall behind are of some half-round gutters, polished a bit matt. the wind is blocked by polycarbonate sheets at the reception. the iconic colors of the company are painted as a few vertical stripes. hanging lights and the carpet make the atmosphere cozy. and some hanging living plants over the work-space make the reference to nature.
