WhiteCrate Container Architecture


We're a passionate bunch of designers, makers, doers and thinkers constantly exploring the 'art of possible' through the medium of container architecture.


Founded in 2007 our original focus was the design & production of creative temporary and event structures. This set a path and quest to find ever more creative and innovative solutions for our clients.  This search naturally led us to explore the shipping container as a robust, cost effective and endlessly modifiable donor structure. Over 50 custom commissions later we have amassed a wealth of knowledge and experience into the constraints of the material, constantly pushing its boundaries. We understand that it has a specific context in which it can and should be applied and it is this expertise that sets us apart. Simply, the shipping container is a vehicle to invent new architecture.

Our mix of skillsets creates a diversity that is unique to the industry. A cross disciplinary culture allows us to tackle any project with ease and constantly creates unexpected and positive results.

Second life structures allow us to create new cultures and methodologies of re-use. We live in a time of increasing resource scarcity. The sourcing of materials must be ethical and responsible. Designs must seek a cradle to cradle approach.
