Located in Trondheim, Norway, the Rake Showroom is a dynamically designed pavilion that is a clever take on sustainable design. Featuring a series of recycled windows, the cubed space is visually intriguing, putting emphasis on scale and proportion.
Playful and imaginative, this building showcases a variety of window shapes and sizes, collected from a nearby building demolition site. Grouped together, these windows form the studio’s facades, complementing a ceiling made up of doors.
This fun and functional Rake Showroom is an interactive art installation that raises discussion on the topic of eco-freindly design. Proving that recycled materials can be a valid building medium, the project serves as a social commentary on society’s habit to discard useable windows when demolishing a building.
