London is renowned for its diverse blend of neighbourhoods, vibrant cultures and remarkable heritage that now interacts with some of the world’s greatest modern-day architecture. Located to the north of central London, the region of King's Cross combines many of these elements and stands as a powerful example of the city’s ability to evolve. From its rise as a major railway hub during the industrial revolution to the lows of its post-war decline, the district is now re-emerging as one of the UK capital’s premiere tech precincts.

Each time a standard 40ft container is recycled, around 3,500kg worth of steel is repurposed. By building with containers, we aren’t using other building materials which harm the environment.
There are millions of shipping containers in the world, but only a fraction of them are in service and used actively. Many of the remaining containers are wasting away in ports and storage yards across the world.
Using one of these already existing containers as the basis for a home or office is a great example of adaptive reuse.
