Budget hotel chain Travelodge recently opened their first hotel constructed out of recycled shipping containers in Uxbridge, UK. The containers were fitted out with drywall, lights and bathrooms in China and shipped to the UK. The construction photos show the steel racking system that holds each container in place. You’ll notice a family resemblance to the Freitag shop in Zurich and work from Lot-ek. The company says the containers are fully reusable and can be disassembled and shipped off again.
