Some might be very sceptical when comes to recycle materias for buildings. Recycle is maybe the last option people have in mind when comes about prestigious things. And to most people, building is prestigious and should not look cheap..
However, sellecting materials, preserving them before applying them on buildings is not cheap, neither about the process nor the final outcome.
Infact, it is very time consuming to sellect and threat the materials to be used on new buildings.
Glass, Wood (especially the first grade hard wood like Chengal, Belian and Balau), roof tiles and even floor tiles are among the valuable recycle materials.
Here are some 'cool' looking recycle materials on new buildings using used bottles giving checkers board effect on the building facade.
Recycle but yet still prestigious...
