What could be more appropriate for a new harbor-side park in Brooklyn — and once the site of a great port complex – than to incorporate shipping container design. That’s what we believed, and the New York City Parks Department agreed.
As a building material, these containers offer a lot. They are abundant, and recycling is both environmentally friendly and inexpensive. The steel bones are structurally stronger than a wood frame. They are mold proof, fire proof and termite proof. On top of that, the containers can be converted off site, transported and then assembled on site, saving time and money on construction.
We incorporated lots of features into what we believe is a very cool comfort station.
