The living building

We had to create a space that would inspire new ideas, where connections could be made, where entrepreneurs could have credibility and access to a healthy and successful environment.

Our goal was to create an organic building, making use of natural light and passive climate control systems.

Our challenge was to see how much of the material we could recycle and re-use. We utilized 90% shade netting, green house membrane, recycled Canadian Pine, Recycled Corrugated sheeting, and FSC timber and particle board. Furniture was build making use of reclaimed Oregon Pine and particle board.
