Description by architects

The Unit Cafe Shipping Container Restaurant became one of the objects of the project to revitalize a part of the plant located in Kiev and our team was working on it.

This cafe is mainly for students studying at 'Unit Factory' school. At first we did not plan to build it. But as we were working on the school project, we realized that there wasn't as much room for a large canteen or cafeteria in the rebuilt building. So we decided to offer the investor to locate the cafeteria separately.

They told us about the opportunity to use shipping containers, but after a few sketches they gave us approval to prepare detailed documents.

The cafe became a quirky business card, a bright spot as residents, students, and others eat, meet, discuss business, and learn about the City of Unit - the name given to this territory.

Fourteen containers were used in the implementation of the project. One of them is vertical, where a staircase is located. On the first floor there is an open terrace that is in the form of a console above the ground floor. The console on the first floor is 7.5 meters. It has a great school and business centers. On one side there is water that leads to the entrance of the bridge.

Exterior and interior have something in common: a bright green container (the first floor) that is also partially painted in this color. There are comfortable sofas, tables with chairs, and plants on the floor and on the first floors. There is a kitchen, a toilet and pantries on the ground floor. The total area of ​​the cafeteria is 275 square meters.
