More palletecture — pallets repurposed as building material
Wood reclaimed from cargo container pallets is used on the walls, floor, and ceiling of a new addition to Hogue Hall, Central Washington University’s engineering and technology building. LMN Architects of Seattle designed the project — the renovation and expansion of the outdated building constructed in 1970 — to LEED platinum standards. (via Daily Record)
The use of used pallet-wood in CWU’s building is the most elegant-looking pallet-reuse example I’ve come across. I suspect I’m not the only person who looks forward to seeing other photos of the building. (The entire project is expected to be completed in 2012.)
