The Outdoor Container Bar and Dining Space in Cape Town

Style: Eclectic 

Location: Cape Town 

It was in 2016 when the professionals of Container Rental and Sales were asked to transform a neglected courtyard into a bustling outdoor bar and dining area. ‘Villa 47’ was the name of the project and old shipping containers were decided upon to help conjure up this commercial property.

    A derelict courtyard, which presented more than adequate legroom and a promising location, was where it all happened.

    An opening in the side of the one container, plus a wealth of other additions and amendments, ensured that an old shipping container was transformed into a fully functional business.

    The shipping containers had to be craned over another building and placed into the courtyard in order to create the exterior socialising area’s base.
