Meet Latitude studios

Upcycled Shipping Container Studios

Our company was founded in finding a smart and unique solution to a real problem: having the space without the distractions and creating a reasonable separation between work and home. We all need room for freedom to work, create, play, exercise, and just be you.

Our Story

We get it.

Our Owner & Founder, Andy, worked in the corporate office setting for more than 15 years as an engineer. And then, 2020: cue the pandemic. Latitude Studios is a solution born from a problem, as all the best ones are. Andy and his wife Sarah were thrust into work-from-home life, as many of us were, in 2020. Having full-time careers combined with their kids participating in school via distance-learning, made it increasingly difficult for everyone to have the space and quiet they needed for things to be smooth, successful, and efficient. Andy started working in the garage, then a converted fish house before landing on shipping containers as a viable building option. Readily available, extremely strong and durable, and infinitely mobile, the containers are a great solution to a modern day problem.
