Tony’s Farm by Studio Playze is an organic farm located in Shanghai, China. This sustainable structure is composed of upcycled green shipping containers which make up the lobby as well as multiple common areas. Plans for Tony’s Farm include the creation of hotel rooms, also built from shipping containers, to provide more facilities for incoming guests. Ventilation holes in the crates stream interesting patterns of light through the building’s plastic exterior. A contemporary and modern building emerges from this innovative collaboration of materials making a structure that is aesthetically appealing as well as functional. [via klatmagazine]
