Visitors to South African branding agency 99c are greeted by a waiting room in the form of a bright red shipping container.

The shipping container is by South African firm Inhouse Brand Architects, which was tasked with converting the top three floors of a new development in the east of Cape Town, overlooking the harbour.

The architects focused on separating work spaces from other areas that can be used for meetings or informal teamwork.

"The latest office design thinking contends that collaboration happens at the water cooler and does not necessarily need to tie up an office space or a meeting room that has been earmarked for client use and often stands empty for most of the day," said Inhouse creative director Aidan Hart.
