It looks like transformed shipping containers are becoming popular as the days pass by and this time it looks like Starbucks is entering the fray with the reported opening of its drive-thru stores which are made from old shipping containers.
The said drive thru was opened over in Northglenn, CO – a brainchild of Starbucks’ president of global development and architect Arthur Rubinfeld. However, the outlet is purely made for drive thru purposes meaning there are no actual chairs or tables that come with it where people can hangout.
The whole outlet measures about 480-square feet is actually the second outlet that was opened by Starbucks (the first one being in Seattle).
The diminutive building is made from two shipping containers that are clad in local snow fencing, which conceals the modular structure and gives the shop a warm tone.
