Comments Off on New Work Station Made With Recycled Pallets Cost Less Than €30 to Build

Two different professionals with different needs needed a new working station. But they had to share the same 18.5 square meter space and they had a very limited budget. They knew the solution had to be functional, resistant, and dynamic. So they finally settled on creating a multi-functional central element out of recycled wooden pallets that would integrate all the working tools and materials within the working place. This way they were able to contain costs and offer one integrated solution for the two different clients. The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Old Gun Supply Store in Arizona Transformed Into Community-Friendly Creative Center of Scottsdale

Michelle Biely bought a property in downtown Scottsdale, Arizona that operated as a gun supply store for over 50 years. She wanted to turn it into a more friendly, community-oriented place and hired Contour Design Studio , led by principal Christina Noble, to turn it into a creative co-working complex complete with a coffee shop and courtyard gathering space. The Creative Center of Scottsdale is an adaptive reuse project of three existing buildings: a 4,000 square foot gun supply store transformed into a creative co-working space, a 2,000 square foot auto shop that is now an empty shell waiting for a tenant, and a 1,800 square foot knit shop that has been renovated as a coffee house. This is the first commercial building in the city to have been approved with the International Green Building Code .
