Student residences built for sustainability
A 1200 residence facility for Qatar foundation was being inaugurated, and the student affairs team wanted to gift students moving into the facility a gift, but not any gift. They wanted an object made from the waste generated from the construction of the building, in order to install a sense of sustainability and to raise awareness on how things we perceive as waste and be repurposed and reused.
Furniture made from construction waste.
Designed to serve as a commemorative gift for every student that moves into the university housing. Its aim is to create a memorable welcoming experience, inject a sense of community and belonging and communicate recycling values, and sustainability awareness.
Simple design, the 'Cartwheel' allows for flexibility for use.
