A fast-food restaurant created from recycled shipping containers

Each of the 20-foot-long shipping containers used in the proposal for the Siauliai, Lithuania restaurant are independent and can be easily reproduced.

Lego Lunch, a planned fast food restaurant for Siauliai, Lithuania, will be built using recycled shipping containers to create a modular and replicable structure. Each module is independent, can be easily reproduced, and has a specific function attached to it, which helps to reduce costs.

The building faces south to take advantage of the natural light and heat provided by the sun. However, because the building is in a cold climate, an LED lighting system and insulation are included in the renovated containers.

The containers act as the load-bearing structures but will be highlighted with wood and glass. A wooden trellis is placed on top of all of the containers and creates an awning in a space between two of the containers, under which customers can sit and relax. The stairs and the platforms surrounding the outside of the containers are made of wood and metal. Wood is also used on the interior walls of the containers. Glass windows create a bright, natural-light filled interior with views of the surrounding landscape.

Hermann Kamte & Associates, the project’s architect, describes the structure as “serviceable, marketable, economical, sustainable, and ecological.”
