In an effort to raise awareness of alternative environmentally friendly building materials available to business, this stylish eco-friendly hotel and wine bar has been built using a truly inventive source.

Design studio Doone Silver Kerr have managed to transform disused shipping containers into a luxury five-story hotel and wine bar; The Stow Away Hotel, in Waterloo, London, which they hope points to the future of sustainable construction projects.

The impressive hotel has been made from 26, nine-meter long shipping containers stacked five in a row.

Each container has been painted white, walls at one end removed and replaced with a glass window, and unique steel sunshades installed along the top left-hand corners of each container to offer protection from sunlight.

The rooms have been custom fitted with marble and plywood fixtures, and a rubber padding inserted along the walls to block outside noise. The super king-sized beds are multi-functional, offering both a sleeping area and couch for watching television on.

Each room has been decorated with a muted colour scheme to evoke a tunnel effect, and all have a micro-kitchenette complete with grill, hob, sink, fridge, and dishwasher, along with a range of utensils including crockery and cooking equipment.

All rooms have WiFi and a flat screen smart TV, plus luxury toiletries as standard.

A single night stay in a studio room for two people costs £180.

The ground floor hosts the Unwined wine bar, which has been created by the container walls being removed to open up a large entertaining space. The bar has been decorated using stainless steel, wood paneling and slate flooring.
