WI:CO WAREHOUSE INTERIOR CONTAINER OFFICE
Design Challenge

How did the architects rethink the possibilities of interior office design for warehouse-type spaces?

Design Solution

AB design studio offers a sustainable, customizable, and innovative interiors solution with WI:CO, or Warehouse Interior Container Office, to create a vibrant and functional workplace that redefines the traditional office environment.

Developed to support a range of warehouse settings, WI:CO is an adaptable, interlocking shipping container-based system that celebrates modular design, while employing green practices grounded in sustainability, efficiency, and craft. An efficient use of reclaimed mobile shipping containers results in a quick construction process while reducing onsite waste. Adjustable workspaces and conference rooms feature sliding glass doors, refined wall and flooring systems, and smart technology to support inspiring places for private or group activities. Breakout areas, on the mezzanine and around the modules, facilitate communication and collaboration between employees, and can be used for additional meeting space or informal teamwork.
