Architects upcycle waste into chic office space

Located in the Special Economic Zone of Icchapor in Gujarat’s Surat city, Peacock Technology’s new office is proof that resourceful up cycling can create a welcoming environment for both work and play.

DWG rose stuck to a tight budget by using reclaimed materials that proved to be easy to find since the port city of Surat had many demolished wooden houses, the parts of which were sold in nearby scrap yards. To minimize costs without compromising aesthetics, the architects recycled discarded materials — from car tires to old floppy disks — into furniture and decoration.

The architects teamed up with art students to transform the materials into furnishings, such as seating made from tires, a CD tabletop, and a receptionist desk made from reclaimed banister pieces and leftover wood.
