This Demolished House Is Now An Absolutely Enchanting Home

Categories: Homes / Dwellings

In 1995, Jaime an artist from Urugay, acquired a beautiful plot of land in southern Brazil near the Praia Brava beach.

It was there he created his breathtaking project. He started by using materials from homes that were demolished that were otherwise going to be sent to the dump. He used glass, wood, pottery remains, and even used bottles.

Today's houses are rarely made out of any reclaimed materials. Even though many buildings are demolished every year, most of the waste goes right to the dump. And about 40% of what ends up in the landfill every year is construction waste.


This is what prompted Jaime to reuse and repurpose these materials. What do you think o f the results? Breathtaking right?
