This Spacious North Carolina Home Is Almost 100 Percent Recycled

3 stories, a master suite, secondary living room and a two-car garage.

By //Design

Architectural firm Buildsense has constructed a three-storey house from an existing property for a family wanting to minimize their environmental impact.

The ranch-style structure sports a giant vertical volume made from aluminum mesh on the entrance which also contains a staircase. The feature, dubbed the “lightbox stair,” is recycled from the previous structure which took up the site. The first floor has an L-shaped kitchen, living and dining room as well as a screened porch for outdoor cooking. The house also boasts a secondary living room, two-car garage, master suite and external balcony used for stargazing. A key area is a metallic walkway overlooking the public areas of the ground floor. For the interior, the design firm chose white walls, wooden floors and slate accents. In total, 85% of the home is built from repurposed materials.
