recycled glass bottles

Community Lodge Dhoksan

function bathroom


material Our idea for this roomhouse is to recycle 25.000 glass bottles in the area of our community. With the bottles we produce self-made bottle bricks, so the light can come through easily. The leftovers of the cut bottles will be grinded and used as an addition for the mortar. As a further addition to the cement-sand mixture, we decided to use lime to make the mortar lighter. The construction is a concrete skeleton, which is completely covered in green bottles.
