The popular coffee franchise Starbucks, has built recently with sea containers an auto-coffee-shop, Will this budget construction lower the high price of its cafes?? I don’t think so… but at least the initiative is a good idea …
The initiative promoted by Starbucks aims to reduce the energy costs for the company, and also promote the green design in its retail centers. This coffee-shop was designed by the inside architects of the brand, which is a statement of long-term intentions.
The inspiration to create these containers cafés, came from the containers that are used to send their own coffee and tea worldwide. Once the containers have already consumed their useful life, rather than dismantling them, they are used to create a coffee-shop like the one showed in these pictures. Also this café will serve as a prototype for the future ones that is going to build the brand.
This is the first 3D concept.
