Amazing Studio 804 Uses Salvaged Materials To Construct Sustainable Home in Kansas
Reclaimed metal panels and wood from railroad trestles were used to create an urban infill dwelling conceived by students in a design-build programme at the University of Kansas.

The home, called 1330 Brook Street, is located in a working-class neighbourhood in the city of Lawrence. It offers convenient access to a cultural district, bike trails and public transit, along with a recreation centre and a park.

The 1,300-square-foot (121-square-metre) dwelling was created by Studio 804, a design-build programme and nonprofit organisation affiliated with the architecture school at the University of Kansas.

“This house is the latest example of Studio 804’s mission to create sustainable housing in established but marginal neighbourhoods,” said the team. “It was designed to be clearly contemporary while still fitting into its working-class surroundings of small, unassuming homes.”

Rectangular in plan, the home is wrapped in insulated metal panels that were salvaged from another construction project in town. The grey panels were planned for a tennis centre, but were rejected due to an issue with the paint, even though they were perfectly functional.

The panels played a key role in the home’s design. The team notes that it began to see a parallel between its efforts and those of the Lustron Corporation, which created prefabricated homes for US veterans returning from the second world war. From 1948 to 1950, the company built around 2,500 low-cost, durable homes featuring steel framing and enamel-coated steel panels.
