This beautiful recycled shipping container by Tsai Design Studio in South Africa was crafted for underprivileged children living just outside of Cape Town - the 2014 design capital of the world. Three South African companies, namely Woolworths, Safmarine, and AfriSam, sponsored the Vissershok Container Classroom project which is a boon for the children of farm workers living in the impoverished Du Noon township. Since it can be quite hot in recycled shipping containers, Tsai created an expansive roof that mitigates excess sunlight, and created a gap that provides natural ventilation.

At just 12 square meters, the colorful classroom provides learning space for 25 5-6 year olds in Grade R, and it turns into a library for the entire Vissershok primary school in the afternoons. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount.
Equipped with a stepped gathering area and a fun jungle gym, the school is also growing a vertical garden that enhances the air quality and provides shelter from prevailing southeasterly winds.
This was then passed over to Tsai Design, who grew her idea into this bright and inspiring learning space.
The steps outside double as a rendezvous spot and informal amphitheater, and a nearby vegetable patch will provide agricultural education as well as food for the new students.


If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
Finally, a vertical garden that juts off the container classroom will shelter kids in the play area from fierce winds once it’s fully grown. This award-winning project demonstrates that design really does have the power to change lives!
