This simple structure composed of 4 re-purposed shipping containers and a kit-of-parts of timber and steel clip-on elements was designed to be easily put together by the owner and a small crew or semi-skilled workers. The main space required that the containers be cut in half and re-assembled to form a social space and conference facility for motorbike riders. Workshop, storage and bathroom facilities are accommodated in two more containers arranged adjacent to the main building to form a series of outdoor spaces for rider training exercises embracing the slope of the site and some existing built forms to provide challenging simulations of off-road riding environments.
