Rescued Homes Project

The Rescued Homes Project is a strategy for a new recycling stream that funnels discarded building materials to fuel new housing construction.

Under this scheme, transfer stations and municipal landfills are used to rescue reusable materials, which are then transferred to a separate site to be categorised and used for the construction of prefabricated housing. These homes would be created with the knowledge of the materials that are in stock; as a result, each unit would end up being unique. Rescued Homes Project is a direct response to one of the fundamental contradictions of our time: cities around the world lack affordable housing while construction companies throw away perfectly good building materials on a daily basis.
