Held using horizontal hinges, the wooden pallets can contract towards the top, allowing privacy or large openings. The modularity of the various palettes creates diverse geometries based on use, which are constantly regenerated and create rather spectacular effects.
Beyond the visuals, Malka wants this project to convey a new strategy, which is based in a de facto ecology of means. "The reappropriation of materials recycles the existing without additional processing, which would cost energy in terms of production and create byproduct pollution," the architect states. "The real environmental approach consists not in destruction, but in superimposing interventions upon our built heritage."
