Recycled container pub opens

Recycled container pub opens

A new £2.4m pub and restaurant, built using 28 recycled shipping containers, has opened at Portishead Marina.

Designed and built by Mackenzie Wheeler for independent family brewers Hall & Woodhouse, the building took 10 months to complete and has a total gross floor area of 2,400sq m.

The development faces the Bristol Channel and the use of containers reflects the idea of travel by sea. This theme is further emphasised in the cargo-like signage and other graphics designed for external walls and within the rooms and corridors.

The pub and restaurant accommodation is characterised by glazed and open spaces with a strong horizontal emphasis. These contrast with the more solid and enclosed areas which form the back-of-house accommodation. The building is further enlivened by the contrast between the organic and irregular profile of the tensile canopies across the frontage with the more rectilinear constructions of the main building. The tight composition of building, landscaped areas and tree planting provides further contrast and variety to the overall form of the completed development.
