A hotel built of recycled shipping containers in London, the Taizhou Contemporary Art Museum in China and finally a tunnel portal,  the recent addition to the Bressanone-Varna by-pass.

Cosy shipping containers: Hotel in London

The architects at Doone Silver Kerr turned recycled shipping containers into hotel rooms that meet all requirements for heat and sound insulation and at the same time offer a homely atmosphere for hotel guests. Steel sheets painted in orange on the windows provide sun protection and give the facade a modern touch.
