Shipping Container Architecture
THE SHIPPING CONTAINER EXPERTS.
qüb9 ARCHITECTURE is programmed for creating cool spaces. And, that's all we do - inspiring modern spaces while utilizing as our muse and fundamental design element - the ISO intermodal shipping container.
qüb9 is a boutique design-fabrication (OEM/ODM) firm located in the Port of Rochester, New York. We are 2015 American Institute of Architects (AIA) Award recipients for design + innovation in shipping container architecture and we top the ISBU list of container building envelope fabricators.
We bring great ideas to the table and we listen. Then we ratify the outcome in the form of modeling, construction documents and visual renderings so you always know what you're getting!
Although shipping containers are central to who we are, we view our place in the architecture community through a lens of 'cautious contribution'. The structures we create must sometimes make bold statements that can stand alone. Other times, they are but an apostrophe - small in stature, but critical to the meaning of the thing. For us, the true craft is helping clients find equilibrium between the tasteful conveyance of inspiration and uncompromised depth-of character; Form + Function.
Generally, our viewpoint is influenced by the modern styles: Mid-century, High-tech and Neo-futurism with Japanese, Scandinavian and New-urbanism sensibilities.
When properly executed, we believe the durable simplicity and sustainable elegance of the universal ISO container stands the test of time; these are a uniquely American building block of unimpeachable integrity.
Our BLOX-Method™ coupled with CPM and 'best-practices' delivers turnkey components in any phase of completion. We can take a project from construction documents to code-compliant installation in as few as 90-days from contract.
