Building waste today represents a huge untapped resource, which will be exploited for the construction of Upcycle Studios. We will ensure that the valuable building materials move to the cities when people move. By reusing the walls from the abandoned dwellings as new facade elements, you save CO2 and virgin materials, while also getting a new building with history and character from day one.
WHAT IF: We could create homes with history? We could build new dwellings out of waste such as residual wood, crushed concrete and windows from old buildings? We could build exclusive sustainable housing at no additional cost? We could minimize the total carbon footprint of the dwellings?
WHY: We reconsider and reuse the untapped resources in “construction waste” to build new homes! We build using sustainable, non toxic and certified materials! The utilization of existing resources has a positive direct impact on the environment!
In Upcycle Studios 75 percent of the windows come from abandoned buildings in North Jutland, Denmark. And 1400 tons of upcycle concrete are casted from very durable concrete waste from the construction of Copenhagen Metro. The wood for floors, walls and facades are produced of offcuts from Dinesen – and the strong collaboration makes it possible to reuse the wood in the building.
Lendager ARC has in collaboration with Lendager UP processed the materials, so they both in quality and function as well as aesthetically appear as beautiful and sustainable building materials!
