Just to show you we’re not all about house building – a great story from Dubai where refurbished shipping containers have been used to create an outdoor cafe.  http://www.zawya.com reports

Using three used containers developers – Smart Box industries have created a unique refreshment area showing off what can be done with recycled sustainable materials.

The purpose-built Outdoor Café has been designed to be both aesthetically appealing and practical at the same time.  C.M. Suri, Smart Box General Manager explained, “Our in-house team of highly innovative architects has developed a unique structure that is eye catching and functional. Smart Box allows the freedom of ‘user driven design’ to be translated into professional architecturally engineered construction.”

Nathan Waugh, Event Manager for MEC and PMV Live, commented on Smart Box’s participation in this year’s event. He explained, “We’re delighted to feature such an innovative and sustainable product at this year’s event. The Smart Box Outdoor Café adds an element of originality and excitement to this exhibition and many of our exhibitors and visitors have already been making the most of the space during their downtime at the event.”
