Sinks were taken from a building that was going to be demolished. They are now the walls of this multifunctional space. Rainwater is collected and put in storage and can be used within the gray water circuit of the pavilion. 2012architecten.nl

The idea was to create a space on the beach in direct contact with the sun that acts as a solar filter, projecting rays through the orifices of the sinks into interior of the cube. www.trashformaciones.com

  • Straw Bale Greenhouses
     
    With a minimum R value of 38, straw bale is always a great choice for at least one wall in a cold climate greenhouse.
  • Shed of the Year
     
    Each year in the UK there is a Shed of the Year Contest.
  • Klinker Brick
     
    Klinker or clinker bricks were overcooked rejects, a product of intense and smokey coal-fired kilns. They were considered a waste product until early Craftsman builders found their sculptural architectural merits.
  • Mirrored Buildings
     
    Beautiful buildings but the thought of birds flying into the glass is dreadful, so all large panes of mirror should have a deterrent, like a hawk cut-out or strips of ribbon hanging in front. Nesting season would be a particularly problematic time.
  • Bark Shingles
     
    No maintenance, long lasting, impenetrable poplar bark siding is a cradle to cradle siding option.
  • Bark Walls
     
    Bark Walls. Bark is waterproof and will not rot; its familiar surface is richly graphic.
  • Corrugated Metal Ideas
     
    Reclaimed corrugated metal is the most earth friendly option.
  • Savin Couelle
     
    Architect-sculptor Savin is the son of self-taught organic architect Jacques Couëlle.
  • Recommissioned Silos
     
    Recommissioning local silos is an eco-friendly housing option.
  • Salvaged Wood Interior Walls
     
    Salvaged wood paneling inspiration...
  • Salvaged Wood Bathrooms
     
    Reclaimed wood works well in bathrooms. Either as paneling, backspashes, vanity, flooring or ceiling.
  • Salvaged Wood Sheds
     
    If you do not have enough salvaged wood to build a cabin. Build a salvaged wood shed.
  • Salvaged Wood Cabins
     
    Old wood from barns, farmhouses, factories, even snow fence, is potential siding for a new home.
  • Homes on Stilts
     
    A rising sea level and hurricane-resistant design choice.
  • Boathouses
     
    Boathouses have been around almost as long as boats.
  • Cob Fireplaces
     
    Cob Fireplace Inspiration...
  • Integrated Solar
     
    New building-integrated photovoltaics or BIPVs blend almost seamlessly with traditional roofing materials.
  • Wood Stove Decathlon
     
    Currently the majority of wood stoves in use deliver only 40 to 50 percent of the energy potential of the wood. This is highly wasteful. But on a bright note, many of the prototype models entered into the Wood Stove Decathlon squeezed out more than 90 percent of the wood's energy potential and burn much cleaner than older stoves. One of the keys is complete combustion...
  • Cob Under Construction
     
    Sand, clay and hay. Mix it with your hands, your feet or a Bobcat. Sculpt in place.
  • Historical Cob
     
    There are cob homes in the UK that are a thousand years old. In Jericho, by the Jordan River, a cob building still stands that was built 10,000 years ago.
