Contained office space with a difference

On the banks of Regent’s Canal in London, 30 shipping containers have been converted and upcycled to offer start ups low rents with minimal overheads, in the hope of helping new businesses to thrive in the hip borough of Hackney. Containerville, by design agency and art collective One Another and LeGun, offers desk spaces in the four-desk containers for £320 per month. Go to wearepopup.com for more details.
