Taking portable buildings to the extreme, Puma (the shoe company) hired the Architecture firm Lot-Ek to design a 11,000 sq. Ft mobile store, which they would send around the world on a cargo ship, accompanied by some Puma Sail boats.
Lot-Ek took 24 standard shipping containers, retrofitted and transformed them into what they are calling Puma City. The building was even built with international travel in mind, meeting international building codes, dramatic climate changes, plug-in electrical and HVAC systems and ease of assembly. This industrial tri-level super store, has an open design, with built in shelving, recessed lighting, large expansive outdoor decks and seems perfectly suited as a night club.
