Juice Box

This project places a series of stacked shipping containers along Jumeirah Beach. The containers combine two essential elements to a fun day by the water in sunny Dubai: safety and hydration.

A Del Monte juice bar is set up inside the lower (6-meter) container, while the deck can be used for a seating area. The upper level, on the other hand, contains a first aid station and a lifeguard tower. The 12-meter container cantilevers over the lower one towards the water providing an elevated platform for lifeguard supervision.

The sides of the containers are operable and allow for adjustment to achieve optimum views for lifeguards, as well as a window for the juice bar below. The roof of the containers are installed with solar panels to generate enough energy for the refrigerators and appliances used to preserve the fruit and make the juice.
