3 Reasons Why You Should Make Art in a Shipping Container Studio

Whether you’re a professional artist or a very enthusiastic hobbyist, having your own space for an art studio can help your work immensely. If you’re deciding to make a free-standing art studio, a shipping container studio is a great option. Below are three of the most convincing reasons why you should make a shipping container studio.

Eco-Friendly Studio

With the current state of the world and the ramifications of climate change impacting our day to day lives, choosing an eco-friendly option is important in any decision you make. A shipping container studio is a great choice if you’re aiming for an eco-friendly and sustainable option because not only is reusing a shipping container the most sustainable way of retiring it from its original use, but you can also optimize a custom shipping container to give it an eco-friendly design.

Endless Customization Possibilities

At IPME, we offer modular options, but we also offer customizations to any project that we work on depending on what you want from a space. The average shipping container is eight feet wide, about nine feet tall, and either 20 or 40 feet wide, which means you have a lot of square footage to create your perfect shipping container studio. Whether you want lots of windows, skylights, extra doors, or anything else, you have plenty of options when it comes to making your shipping container studio.

For example, if you want to have room to display your art on the walls but still want natural light, you could have a window on your door as well as skylights to make sure that you have enough light to work. With customized shipping containers, there are tons of possibilities and combinations to create your perfect workspace.

A Contemporary Aesthetic

Modified shipping containers are becoming more common, but as a whole, they are still a unique part of the contemporary industrial aesthetic. Not only are they useful and eco-friendly, but you can also choosing shipping container modifications that will make your studio space be beautiful and even more unique. Choosing a matte paint finish or a bold color for the outside of your shipping container studio can help make your studio feel less like a shipping container and more like a studio designed just for you and your art.
