31 Creative Cardboard Spaces

From Cardboard Cat Houses to Luxury Paper Pop-Ups

— December 17, 2011 — Eco
Architects and designers are finding more and more ways to create products and designs that protect the environment, as shown by these creative cardboard spaces. Cardboard is a versatile material that can be used to build a wide range of structures, from cat homes to prefabricated playgrounds.

Some of the reasons why this material has become more popular is because it's recyclable, easy to build, portable and adaptable. It can be used to build offices, houses, shelters, playhomes and other examples of eco-friendly constructions. In addition to all these fantastic qualities, cardboard feels warm and somehow cozy, making living areas more enjoyable and friendly, even during times of environmental crisis.

Check out these creative cardboard spaces to find unique designs and ideas that help the environment and work toward a better future for humanity.
