Arcgency uses old shipping containers to build portable co-working spaces
JUL 17, 2017 | By Nishita Fiji
In the Northern Harbour of Copenhagen, decrepit factories, loading piers and port terminals are vacating to make room for development. As these regions lay barren waiting for urbanity to take over, Danish architecture company Arcgency saw a promising opportunity. They created Stack I and II, both temporary edifices made from old shipping containers that serve as co-working spaces for professionals. The buildings are three levels high with insulated panels that encapsulate all sides to form an airtight shell, which is crucial for minimising heat loss, ideal for extreme cold climates in Scandinavia.
