Berlin is known to be an expensive city and people should spend their money wisely if they want to be in Berlin longer. Housing in Berlin is expensive as well, which is why enterprising artists Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset decided to purchase a former water pumping station in the suburb of Neukolln just three miles away from the city center of Berlin. With the help of Architects Nils Wenk and Jan Wiese, the old water pumping station has turned into a new stylish and spacious home and studio workspace.
Using the existing fixtures and unique finishes of the building, the renovation took for about a year. They provide new purpose of the buildings current fixtures whilst keeping the historic nature intact like using the old large vent in the second floor and make it as the new fireplace for the house. The platforms that were then used to supervise the plant’s machineries became the mezzanine office space.
If we are just creative enough, we can make use of what we considered junk today and save some amount of money from it while keeping the environment safe as well. In this case, Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset spent $700,000 for this wonderful and eco-friendly home.
Water conservation has been a call for such a long time already. However, it seems like only a few are answering to the said call, not until the issue of Global Warming came out. The issue sounds like everybody is being warned and all are now aware and seem like cooperating to help save the environment. A Toronto based company creates the RC-1 Rain Collector, which I find a perfect tool to conserve water and energy thru the rainwater that is being collected by the RC-1 that has the ability to hold 45 gallons of rainwater. With this enough amount of water, you can now surely water your garden or wash your dog or car or clothes without the need to tap on your city’s water supply.
