Everything BUT the “Kitchen Sink”?

Building constructed of used ktichen sinks

Building Made Entirely of Recycled Kitchen Sinks

This incredible reclaimed pavilion defies the old “everything but” cliché – it is entirely made of kitchen sinks. Built by 2012 Architechten in cooperation with Jeanne van Heeswijks of Jeanneworks, the structure has risen up as a stainless steel castle tower amidst the traditional architecture of Utrecht, Vlaardingen and Amsterdam. An inventive example of reclaimed construction, the Sustainable Sky Box 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. The airy structure is open on top to the sky and doesn’t feature any specific amenities inside, which makes it more of a community gathering place than a shelter. The building can also collect rainwater in a tank to water the nearby collective garden.

A stunning example of reclaimed design, we could envision this type of facade being used more frequently. The sink basins could easily be replaced with windows, and the metal could be riveted to the building skeleton for a bombproof cladding material.
