WE MODIFY CONTAINERS TO BARS, STAGES, GARAGES AND MORE. U DREAM IT, WE BUILT IT.
Panorama zomer bar : challenging project where 2 20ft dry vans were modified to make 1 large volume that can open from the side (not the standard rear doors) & is used for a bar & storage area. The toprails were reinforced & the side containerdoors were handmade using recycled material from the cutout side. This cutout was framed & door hardware was applied.
Hemiksem bouwt een feestje: for this project we really pushed ourselves to the limit. We were asked to come up with a containerbox setup that could be built up in a few days (not weeks!) and that could hold around 2000 party people for the event. An extra challenge was that the underground surface where the boxes were to be placed on, could not be altered with fixing lashes or other permanent structures which would hold the structure upright as a basepoint. We had to rethink the entire project and eventually came up with 4 upright 20ft dry vans for the sound & light systems, “the arena” with a DJ booth in front of it facing the crowd inside the arena. The DJ booth was built with 2 dryvans on top of eachother. Both boxes reinforced, cutout roof & side opposed to eachother to make the booth. The most innovative feature : the counterweight which was reached with water basins, welded in place from scratch to fit the size of the box. These basins can be released using a high pressure water valve draining it in a few hours.
