Ken Block’s New Container Warehouse

by The Editors on January 22, 2013


This really has nothing to do with the topics we cover, aside from the fact that it’s Ken Block. His new Hoonigan Racing Division warehouse has been completely built out using discarded shipping containers, according to a story on Jalopnik, and it’s one of the best uses of those containers we’ve seen in a while.

“Having been involved with the leasing and building of office space for other companies like DC Shoes, I wanted to avoid the inflexibility of constructing a space made of lumber and sheetrock walls,” said Ken Block. “Using recycled shipping containers as the building blocks for the Hoonigan Racing Division headquarters is not only more environmentally friendly, but it gives us the flexibility to add more infrastructure and the ability to pack the entire facility onto trucks if we ever needed to relocate.

Place looks like a teenage boys dream fort, doesn’t it? Wonder if Ken’s up for some pong?
