Architects Chris Whyms-Stone and David Douglas who own the firm of Cornerstone Architects in Kingston, Jamaica. They first began 
designing shipping container architecture in 2002. (photo below)

Jamaica is where Professor Richard Martin, founder of Global Peace Containers built his first prototype school project in 2000. He has 
been an obvious inspiration on visionary architects such as the Cornerstone partners, both in Jamaica and globally. 

Jamaica architects design and build office using ISBU shipping container modules.

FAQ: What is an ISBU?
An ISBU is the professional term
for a shipping container used for
housing or other type construction.

This Jamaica office is built from a single 40GP ISBU cargo container and is the 
office of the same architects who designed and built the cargo container office.

It was designed by architects Chris Whyms-Stone and David Douglas who own 
the firm of Cornerstone Architects in Kingston, Jamaica. This is not only their 
design but also their new office. It sits on an elevation which adds even more to
 it's unique appearance.

With real estate prices soaring this was their plan dating as far back as 2002. 
They have other shipping container designs including a car dealership, however 
there is an extreme shortage of shipping containers in Jamaica. Eventhough there
is a demand and great interest in shipping container designs in Jamaica, the ISBU 
shortage has halted construction.
