Shipping Container Hotel is Singapore’s first and only "pop-up" and sustainable hotel, co-living and co-working space! Our objective is to give our guest a unique living and working off-the-grid experience.
Our containers are both movable and sustainable. Movable because we want Singaporeans and tourist to dictate where they want to have their staycations. TCH also aims to become the first carbon neutral hotel in Singapore. We are putting in sustainability solutions such as solar panels, electricity saving devises, power and water monitoring systems, etc. into our containers. With this objective, we aim to disrupt the hotel, co-living and co-working industry and change mindsets. Yes, it's possible to work and have fun in our containers and yet save the world!
Shipping containers are ideal because of its metal construction. Structurally, it is robust and there are many examples around the world of homes and hotels being built using shipping containers. Container homes/hotels are also eco-friendly because they are made from recycled shipping containers. Constructing out of used containers not only helps the environment through recycling, it also means that additional materials aren’t used. The supply of used containers is unlikely to run out, as each year more than 500,000 shipping containers are abandoned worldwide.
Another reason why people construct homes, hotels and offices using shipping containers is that they can be built extremely fast. When we construct a shipping container hotel using shipping containers, much of the structure is already complete, such as the walls and the roof. This means that we can build a shipping container hotel in as little as one month. Best of all, the container is mobile and we can move in/out a container hotel within a day!
Shipping container hotels are appealing to many because they have a very modern and “Instagram worthy” appearance. Containers have been used to create stunning mountain retreats all the way to tiny beach huts all around the world. Lastly, containers allow for “off-grid” living. Off-grid living, in the purest sense, means to live in a home which is self-reliant and self-sufficient. However, our hotels will offer the full gamut of living in a hotel suite which includes a bedroom, living room, dining room, full kitchen, bathroom, patio complete with a BBQ pit, aircon, toilet and fresh running water.
