Nest Architects are a Melbourne based architecture and design practice and the minds behind this bright and resourceful shipping container conversion.
So, what is it?
“The Gorman Ship-Shop is exactly what it’s called. A shop that can be shipped, moved or planted anywhere there’s space…”
Designed for client Lisa Gorman of Gorman Industries this amazingly portable design uses basic design principles of functionality to create a unique space. By adopting the simple structure of the container and staying true to its original purpose (shipping..) the appropriately named shipshop acts as a constantly
moving exhibit -
“Sometimes the simple little projects are the most involved … and the most rewarding.”
“Lisa Gorman asked me if we could convert a shipping container into a shop. Being in love with these simple steel modular boxes (like most architects) we said “sure … why not.” The resulting shipping shop took the combined efforts of two architects, a carpenter and his apprentices, a steel fabricator, two transport companies, a sustainability consultant, the entire Gorman office and many others.”
