A modular fast food restaurant popped up in Siauliai, Lithuania, to provide a healthy communal space that can be easily replicated anywhere. Architecture firm Hermann Kamte & Associates designed the restaurant, named Lego Lunch, as an affordable, reconfigurable space built from recycled shipping containers. Lego Lunch is a replicable structure that combines affordability and a low carbon footprint . The architects used recycled 20-foot shipping containers and combined them into a space where locals in Siauliai, Lithuania, can have a meal and relax during workdays. Small design interventions enhance the energy performance of the new building and give with warmth. LED lighting and additional insulation were also introduced to improve efficiency. Related: Nation’s largest shipping container restaurant was installed in just 3 days The architects conducted extensive programmatic analyses to achieve an optimal organization of the space. The purpose of the first analysis was to understand connections and interactions between owners, designers and customers. The second focused on the food preparation process, while the last phase combined the preceding two to create an optimal layout. + Hermann Kamte & Associates

Comments Off on Gigantic Airship Hangar Transformed Into Tropical Island Resort

This supermassive hangar once housed gigantic airships , and now it has been given a second life as an indoor tropical resort that holds the world’s largest indoor pool and water park. Located in the countryside between Dresden and Berlin, the building was modified to bring in lots of sunlight and the huge doors were welded shut to keep in the heat — even during the snowy German winter. Inside, a small oceanside village gives visitors a tropical escape.

Image credit Archie McFee Three years ago we wrote about the original Anti-Theft Lunch Bag: TreeHugger promotes healthy diets and frugal living, so taking your organic arugula sandwich on homemade whole-grain beats the KFC any day. But such delicacies are often stolen by people who “accidentally” mix them up with their own bologna on Wonderbread. But after a while, people are going to catch on to the old moldy bag trick.

How can I reuse or recycle plastic salad tubs?

Comments Off on How can I reuse or recycle plastic salad tubs?

Next up in our lunch – themed week… Like clear plastic muffin/cake boxes , plastic clamshell-ish tubs from salad bars or pre-packed pastas/salads are frustrating – they’re *almost* strong enough and *almost* resealable enough to be reused but not quite. As with many things of this nature, it’s best to just avoid them when possible so you don’t have to worry about disposing of the tub afterwards – but if you do pick one up, what can you do with it
