Bayside Marina Hotel

Bayside Marina Hotel, by Yasutaka Yoshimura Architects, in Kanagawa, Japan – It consists of 31 hotel guest rooms, which are made from 40 ft. steel shipping containers.
In Japan the cost of labor and building material are quite expensive. The affordable solution is to import the buildings themselves, not the building material, resulting in low-cost transportation and a short period of construction.
Based on that, in the Bayside Marina Hotel project, used containers were prefabricated in Thailand. Both interior and exterior of the guest rooms were completed at the factory, ready to be transported to Japan.
