Upcycle House by Lendager Arkitekter
by Ted Savage / December 18, 2013
Garbage to gold: An experimental project, Upcycle House by Lendager Arkitekter, in Nyborg, Denmark, aims for extreme carbon emission reduction by building a home from converted post-consumer waste, recycled and upcycled into primary construction materials.




The house is structurally founded on two shipping containers, with roof and facade in cladding from aluminum soda cans, and includes post-consumer recycled granulated paper panels, OSB panels from recycled, chipped wood, and a kitchen floor made from champagne corks, for a stunning 86% reduction of carbon emissions compared to a benchmark conventional home.

Passive energy efficiency is achieved through orientation of the structure, and optimization for temperature zones, natural light and ventilation. Developed in partnership with Realdania Byg, a Danish foundation promoting good building practices. Photos by Jesper Ray and Polfoto. Via ArchDaily.
