Pavilion made of reclaimed kitchen sinks
Who says that kitchen sinks are the least important part in a household? Not only does it give you a clean dish to eat, cook and serve on, it has also got a few other uses, so proved by 2012 Architechten in cooperation with Jeanne van Heeswijks of Jeanneworks. It’s a reclaimed pavilion entirely made of kitchen sinks. The Sustainable Sky Box has risen up as a stainless steel castle tower and serves as a multi-purpose space for cultural activities. Reclaimed kitchen sinks serve as the pavilion’s principle facade elements, which are held together with scaffolding, wire and waterproof multiplex boards.
It isn’t an example for a shelter but the open and airy structure is more of a community gathering place. The building can also collect rainwater in a tank to water the nearby collective garden.
