German Embassy in Pristina

Ferizi + Ferizi Architects created a modern structure using shipping containers for the additional office building to be built within the German Embassy in Kosovo. The building was completed in 2016.

This is a really nice building which is made by using steel shipping containers. 8 x 20 FT shipping containers were used in the construction of this building.

Mostly there are two types of steel shipping containers in market. These are 20 feet or 40 feet. These are used in combination to make a building. This combination makes a complete building. These are joined together here after being transported by transporters.

The reformed steel shipping containers are cheap. One who cannot afford new steel shipping containers, can use reformed ones.

This building is painted white. The size is large and it occupies a great area.

Use of steel shipping containers is reached to such a level that now these are used in making of official buildings. Embassy glows in night. The lights are fixed in this and it glows like a bulb which golden colour during night.

Glass and wood are used in combination with steel shipping containers

Glass and wood use in making of buildings is really classic. In fact, buildings are completed after use of glass windows and wood in the construction. This is mandatory past of construction.

The glass windows which are sliding, are used in buildings and their insulation is made by use of wood. The doors are made of wood. Floor is also made of wood mostly. It depends on choice of the owner.

Concrete material is also used in construction

Yes, this is true. The ground level is set by using concrete material. The foundation of a home or any building matters a lot. The foundation is set by using concrete material. This is set on the ground and then containers are fixed on it. This all foundation is made by using concrete material.

Outer roads are also made by using this material. If foundation of any building is not made stronger, then it results in damage to building earlier. So, this is very important factor which has to be kept in mind while making a building of steel shipping containers.

The framework of a containers building also matters. It is made by using steel or iron pillars. The wood may also be used. These all things make a container building collectively rigid for a longer time. In this way, a container building can last longer than 25 years.
