The Music Boxes


Commissioned by Urban Space Management (TBW) Ltd, Container City provided 6 new sound recording studios in London’s Docklands.

Each housed within a single or double 20ft shipping container, the Music Boxes have a fully glazed entrance, porthole windows and excellent sound installation.

The small size of each studio enables the management company to keep rent low and encourage small businesses to develop.
