Reused Containers for the new Starbucks in Taiwan

The new Starbucks Tawain store, brought to life by the famed Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, has been realized from 29 reused shipping containers. The total area is 320 square meters and thanks to the stacking of the containers the space are tall and illuminated by natural sunlight through the various skylights found throughout the structure. In the US, Starbucks has already opened 45 of these pre-fabricated modular stores, minimizing the environmental footprint generally associated with new buildings. Through these store format, Starbucks is able to reuse materials throughout.
