Junk Castle


Not for everyone modern and luxury house architecture is what they want. Some people think different about green buildings and this house is a great example of this way of thinking. Residents of this house do not have to spend thousands of dollars in order to do something good to our planet. Those people simply create something beautiful from trash and called their work Junk Castle. This building is located in Washington and it is constructed from many different items, including washing machine parts, miscellaneous housings, sheet metal, dryer doors, bedsteads and even a door from a 1952 Oldsmobile. The Junk Castle symbolizing the reusability of junk as well as showing off the designer’s creativity. The building was created by former art teacher Victor Moore and his wife Bobbie.

This definition is broad and inclusive permitting many different interpretations; however, the underlying objective is that architectural reuse may be understood as an evolutionary process occurring over time. Like ecological succession, adaptive reuse deals with directional change, a gentle and unpredictable temporal shift is the whole basis of the building’s structure and function. The castle is featured in several books including “Strange Sites” by Jim Christy, “Fantasy Worlds” by John Maizels and “Fantastic Architecture” published by Abrams. Adaptive reuse “slows nutrient loss” while contributing to the diversity, complexity and continuity of a particular place. People all over the world who have heard about this castle have shown such a positive attitude to its concept that this castle indeed qualifies as a competitor in the dream castle segment.
