Final product of this project was a result of some main issues that directed the design process.

Domus living solutions company as our employer requested a portable popup shop prototype that could have different uses in different times and locations.

As an initial prototype,  a cafe was considered for main usage of the unit.

A cafe that can be located on different places of city in the optimum way and minimum occupancy level with ability of supporting users and customers.

Domus living solutions company that works in the field of portable and light structures, requested to use shipping container for reaching these qualities. 

Thus, design process started and cafe spaces arranged according to standards and requirements of a small bar with taking away service. And also a seating area was considered on the roof of the container.

Electrical and mechanical installations of cafe were considered in 2 mode. Thus, cafe can rely on infrastructure of its location. Or if necessary,  it can work as a stand alone unit by relying on installed resources and reservoirs.

Eventually, the designed prototype was manufactured and displayed at the exhibition held by Domus company in Tehran and was used for the first time by welcoming guests and visitors.
