Revitalizing an industrial area with shipping container housing in the portside suburbs of Copenhagen, Denmark

Danish firm Arkitema, which recently unveiled its new “Beat Box” concept in partnership with Container Living. Comprising 30 apartments in 48 shipping containers sitting on a steel frame above a concrete base that will house storefronts, it’s a deliberate effort to revitalize the Musicon (named in part for its proximity to Roskilde’s annual music festival) neighborhood of Roskilde, Denmark. Each container occupies 30 square meters, and two-container apartments are set to make up most of the site.
