Recycled Houses – Repurposed Steel and Concrete from the I-93

Big Dig House in Lexington, Massachusetts, designed by SsD Architects, is a lesson in sustainable building practices with stunning results! This recycled house comes from steel and concrete salvaged from Boston’s Big Dig, using over 600,000 lbs of materials repurposed from elevated portions of the dismantled I-93 highway. Because of the materials’ high load-bearing potential, the architects incorporated elaborate rooftop gardens. Designed and built in pre-fab fashion, this wood, glass and steel home features an industrial-chic interior design, with warm natural woods contrasting cool steel and concrete details. The house is laid out in a series of layers with lofts, providing each separate living area some privacy while keeping them all connected in the grand scheme of the design. SsD Architects
