Modifying a Steel Container

Are you looking to rent an artist’s studio, or looking for a space where you can create?  It can be difficult, especially in an urban area to find accommodation that offers the light and space that you may require.

One way to solve this issue is by modifying a steel container– yes really!  We have seen containers with wooden flooring, with patio doors and with potholes. Containers can be stacked on top of each other to optimise light and space. Artists can band together and create an artistic community, each with their own container. Not as daft as you think – artist’s container communities have sprung up in London, Scotland and in other spaces around the country.

The ease of converting a container and the speed in which the community can be set up is ideal.  Modifying steel containers is a quick job done to your specifications so can meet all your requirements in minimum time.

Containers are a flexible solution to accommodation requirements. They can be used for as long as you need them and if your requirements change they can be loaded on a lorry and sold on. They are ideal if artists are working on a specific project or on a show.
