using the structural capacities of a 45 foot shipping container, northern irish architect patrick bradley has presented plans for his new office to be built in county derry. both the design and the construction of the scheme is being carried out by thornton modular, a company who specialize in developing bespoke container projects. due to the site’s relatively small size, the studio maximizes available space by cantilevering above a steep cliff at the edge of the plot. the office has been configured to foster a relaxed yet stimulating atmosphere, while forging a strong connection with the natural environment. the project is currently in the early stages of the design process, with a completion date not yet established.
