From a distance, Denver Pallet House looks like a sleek, perfectly manicured modern home. But, as its name indicates, the home has more of an industrial edge than its broad minimalist form lets on. Upon closer inspection, Denver Pallet House is covered in shipping pallets, the wooden slips that populate construction sites, shipping warehouses, and other industrial areas by the dozen.

The single family home is located in Sloan's Lake, a neighborhood in Denver, Colorado. The shipping pallets that cover it were indeed recycled from nearby projects, and they've only been covered with a thin layer of paint before being assembled onto the facade. The pallets along the front-facing facade of Denver Pallet House are attached to hinges, allowing them to open and let in more light to the partially exposed upper deck.
