Located to the south of Cardiff city-centre, Cardiff Containers is a collection of re-purposed shipping containers that provide affordable studio space best suited to hands-on makers.

The Containers are situated right next door to Meanwhile House Cardiff and share use of the main building's facilities. Together the two projects form one of the largest creative communities in Cardiff.

More about the building

The first phase of Cardiff Containers launched in summer 2018, with the new spaces quickly filled by a diverse range of creative and enterprising individuals including a barista, graphic designer, illustrator and radio station. We've now begun work on the second phase of the project, with the addition of a second layer of containers stacked on top of the first.


24/7 access.

Entry to the main building is with an electronic key fob. Each container is secured with a padlock. The site has CCTV.


Cardiff Containers is located just to the south of Cardiff Central train station, near Brain's Brewery.

From Penarth Road take the turning between Big Yellow Storage and Kwik Fit - Curran Embankment. The containers are around 100m down on the left-hand side, next to Meanwhile House Cardiff.
