A commercial plaza in Shanghai
Bopind Container Commercial Design
Located in a commercial plaza in Shanghai, the Boshi design team made a container business-themed design based on the terrain and the business inside the plaza.
In the huge "T"-shaped plaza, the design team of Boreal designed a flowing "container commercial street" for the plaza according to the moving lines of the terrain and considering fire passages and other issues at the same time.
Taking the container as the base unit, the evolution design transforms the container into a store of various shapes: single-storey or double-storey, or with a terrace, or a variety of commercial solutions that can be folded, pushed and pulled.
The push-pull container coffee shop can be used as a rest area when the front baffle is unfolded; the container coffee shop with a terrace can go to the terrace to drink coffee and take a break;

Large-scale buildings made of containers are prevalent in urban centers, verifying the possibility and inclusiveness of modular buildings. The container commercial street is widely used, which truly realizes environmental protection, comfort and energy saving, and can meet the different needs of customers.
