The Children`s Activity Centre designed by Phooey Architects is located in Melbourne, Australia. All materials brought to site were durable, recycled, reclaimed, plantation, reused or salvaged from demolition. This included decking, windows, carpet tiles and joinery. The whole container was re-used including doors suspending balconies.
As a process of feedback design, the container off-cuts (with cannibalised super scale graphics) were recycled into the final building. Container off-cuts were re-fashioned into functional balustrades, sun shading and decoration. Timber deck off-cuts became soffit linings.
