Starbucks Drive-Through Store Made Out of Shipping Containers

Starbucks' in-house architects have created a new cargo-tecture structure located in Tukwila, Washington. The 4 containers provide about 450 square feet of interior space, and three baristas in roughly the same area that they would occupy in a conventional coffee shop.

The LEED-certified storefront is part of Starbucks' efforts to increase the sustainability, while reducing environmental and operating costs. We really love pre-fab or using pre-made materials instead of wood, bricks, and steel. It also is a pretty stunning design.

That's actually pretty cool.

Just hope they don't have anyone ram into the support columns as they're going through the drive-thru!
