Party in a Box!
Repurposed containers are just the ticket
Andrew parlayed his design and manufacturing experience into Cabin Fever, a prefab house kit company. Now he combines his background in furniture manufacturing and building prefabs into repurposing containers at Little River Box Company. He's a renaissance man - a craftsman, inventor, innovator and visionary.
Gayle's passion has always been bringing ideas to life. She enjoys connecting the dots by creating products that integrate seamlessly into their environment. Materials, proportion and how things go together are paramount in her design philosophy. Making this world a more beautiful and comfortable place is her mission. After a brief foray in the prefab business at Cab Prefab, it was evident that her heart was still in metal. And the container business was born!
Kelly and Zalduondo created their first showroom from containers during Art Basel 2006, and it's taken off from there. An early project was building a commercial bar from containers, and that propelled them into creating a product line to show some of the many functions for containers. They have designed retail boxes, cafes and bars, exhibition spaces and coming on line next season will be the Loo Box, a rugged, smart and well designed portable bathroom.
So when Ken Lyon decided to open Charcoal Garden Bar + Grill, a full service restaurant and bar in Wynwood Art District (82 N.W. 29th Street - 786-646-2998), his first stop was Little River Box Company. A restaurant designed from containers offers location independence (moving's a snap - just pick up and go), versatility and a short turn around time.
No matter the project, Little River Box Company can make it happen. They are located at 9200 N.W. 27th Avenue in Miami - 305-302-6260. Visit the site at www.LittleRiverBoxCompany.com.
