Recycled building materials Van IJken

“Jan van IJken Old Building Materials” is a business specialising in recycling leftover materials from demolished and renovated buildings.

Leftover materials are disassembled, repaired and reused in new building and renovation projects. Cradle to Cradle avant la lettre.

Existing materials have been used into the new building as well. The frontage, for example, consists of a large “face of a roof”, in which text has been applied in different colours of roof tiles, analogue to some large farmhouses. This face forms an incident in the design that is otherwise contemporary.
