We refine used sea freight containers into living spaces using leading-edge technology

Our multi-patented process enables a mechanically inserted, monolithic, and thus thermal bridge-free high-performance insulation. The processing of used sea freight containers into housing modules is carried out in a serial industrial process with precision and consistently high quality. Increasingly, we are gaining space and can deliver high quantities in a short time.

“Upcycling on a large scale: sea freight containers become housing modules.”

„… There are no stylistic limits to the modules within the certain framework of their original morphology …“

„Resource-saving methods of construction, recycling or upcycling, as practiced by Containerwerk, are forward-looking techniques and principles.“

Prof. Han Slawik, pioneer of container architecture in Europe
