Starbucks Opens Drive-Thru Coffee Shop Built Out Of Shipping Containers [Pics]
The idea came from the company's use of the containers to ship their ingredients from around the world.
Starbucks opened a new coffee shop on December 13th in Tukwila, Washington, that is made from four recycled shipping containers. The Reclamation Drive-Thru has been designed to LEED green building standards by resident Starbucks architects and has integrated rainwater harvesting.
Inspired by the company’s use of the containers to ship their coffee and tea from worldwide locations, the drive-thru uses a similar design aesthetic to their coffee shops. The Reclamation Drive-Thru is the first of its kind and is currently a one-off, but it is being viewed as a prototype that could be replicated in other locations.
