the recycled garage
Reuse, recycle, acknowledge and embrace...this new attitude towards objects has a strong following. The Hub Office is Madrid, by ch+qs arquitectos exposes its past as a garage and builds on the layers of history to create this wonderful office. Furniture was donated from employees and friends, and recycled fruit crates were used everywhere as storage, bookshelves, counters, tables and stools. This sustainable environment, both economically and environmentally, should be adopted more! The hub is said to have become a cultural and social focus of its neighbourhood. Photos by Daniel Torello.
