The shipping container as a means of transporting a product, now as a user's container. Elementary and iconic prefab structure. Pure volumes intersect in an esplanade towards Santa Rosa, the speed of the highway defines the tensions and pauses of these.

On the first floor, the shipping containers intersect, forming the furniture exhibition and sale rooms (showroom). While the volume, which is on the second floor, contains offices.
