If you want to understand what Cool Boxes is all about and how we strive to uphold the principles of SPACE (sustainability, partnerships, alternatives, creativity and ecology) then read here about why we think using shipping containers as building method is a great idea. Sustainability is all about having a green mind, being aware of the impact we have on our environment.
These posts explain our basic approach to design, as well as our conviction that the recycled material at your disposal should determine the function and form of the end product.

Our blog aims to cover a wide range of SPACE aspects.
