Container City 2

Probably the most recognisable container building in the world, Container City II is easily recognisable by its bright colours designed to reflect the creative nature of those who occupy its 22 studios. Built adjacent to Container City I, with interconnecting bridges, a lift and full disabled access, Container City II was completed in 2002. It offers five floors of workspace and is the focal point of this exciting arts quarter.
