Ever wondered about the limits of what one can construct with disposed materials; the limits of re-purposing ? Well we just spotted the very cool Big Dig House of Lexington MA, and this just might give you a good clue.
The house is constructed of steel and concrete from Boston's Big Dig, using over 600,000 lbs of salvaged materials. The home, designed by Single Speed Design, won the firm AIA/BSA Housing Design Award. Standing at over 4300 sq. feet the structure is a spacious modern example of what is possible in sustainable building.
