District 10 – Unit 0.1

AIM

District 10 0.1 is Scotland’s first commercial office building made out of recycled shipping containers and will accommodate start-up businesses in Dundee’s new creative media hub. The development, on a former railways goods yard, forms an integral part of the city’s long term strategy for waterfront redevelopment.

The brief was to deliver a “brand building” that was distinctly creative and dynamic. The 1980s computer game Tetris provided the influence for the abstract external mosaic. The part pre- assembled nature of the building allowed rapid construction and completion over a six- month period. The 37 30ft containers connected together to form 15 individual leasable units.
