This custom sales space was designed to showcase Toronto’s new boutique condo building in the West end, from developers Curated Properties. The space resembles a wintery northern lodge, with wood, stone and modern furniture stylings for the purpose of radiating a quiet coziness. The containers were also outfitted with expansive windows and an urban patio area to capture the attention of spectators. Cabin is constructed of 7 40’ ISO shipping containers, 4 of which are stacked. The prefabricated shipping containers are fitted with windows and door openings, insulation and finished with the desired floor and wall material at the warehouse, reducing site construction time. The individual containers can easily be delivered to site for assembly, or to be taken apart for its second life as a private residence. As Cabin is being recycled into different identities, it aims to reduce waste and disturbance to the environment.
