The project is laureate from the call for entries: “Révolution sensible: upcycling and socio-economical nomadism”, launched by the COPA-VIA paysage.
A Movable upcycled shed: Reuse wood coming from old windows to manufacture furniture is the original project. This pavilion is designed in the same way as the furniture pieces, it shows the different surface conditions we get using different processing and assembly methods. It also tells the inside and outside uses that we can think of. This shed is a micro-architecture by itself, designed like a piece of furniture. Its modularity allows us to experiment different exterior uses which will fit to urban and rural situations.
The making of: 1. Modules As they are used for shipping windows, we chose to use 4 pallets as the structure. When putting these together we get a 4 m long x 2,4 m wide element. But they can also be used separately, offering different functions from one pallet to another.
2. Laths After that, laths from used windows have to be screwed in place, on the pallets, they are installed to offer a number of different uses. Mixing laths from different upcycled windows emphasizes the diversity of wood species. The wood used for manufacturing windows and doors is of high quality and can be used outside. On each module, the roof is supported by knee-braces that follow the palette shape.
