HAKA RECYCLE OFFICE from DOEPEL STRIJKERS on Vimeo.
The furniture system designed to furnish the Haka building is based on reusing different pieces of used wood, ranging from strips of timber to old doors, even roof braces and beams, which, using repetition and addition, are made into a wide office programme. Partition walls, desks, platforms, display cases, benches, chairs and cabinets are all made from this recycled material. The construction system further takes into consideration not only the approximate sourcing of the materials but also the ease of dismantling.
a+t magazine 39-40, Reclaim, collects some of the works in the Haka Building, such as:
- Building office furniture with material from demolition sites
- Measuring traceability and social recycling
