subway car Recycled change into studios in London
Seeing the activities of young artists in London who have to rent studio space is very expensive to get to work. Furniture designer Auro Foxcroft make an intelligent innovation and environmentally conscious solutions.
Namely by taking the subway an old and put it on the roof, and use it for office space! Rather rare? Sure! But this subway recycling sure to inspire thinking greening, the artistic efforts of socially conscious.
Located in the old brick warehouse in Shoreditch, London, Village Underground provides affordable studio space for young artists. Subway car serves as a workspace for artists, while the lower level of restored barn used to be a show off and show the work of artists.
These four subway cars that make up the village had been purchased for a grand total of 200 pounds. They then moved on the warehouse, and installed to create a working space.
Seats in the train was removed, but other things stay the way (one can even go into the cabin to play with all the buttons and levers).
Best? There are plans to extend this concept to Berlin, Lisbon, and Toronto.
