Abstract

Students of Eindhoven University of Technology have developed a sustainable and innovative hikers’ cabin, called "Trek-In" for SNK, a Dutch coordinating organization of natural campsites. By now, three Trek-Ins are in commercial use, while SNK intends to exploit over 100 Trek-Ins in the coming years. This case study shows current possibilities of recycling in an architectural context, because nearly all materials used are derived from demolition waste materials. The structure as well as inner and outer finishing, but also plumbing, wash hand basin, toilet bowl, light switches, wall sockets, kitchen, et cetera, are all reclaimed from demolitions. A Trek-In exists of two modules that are fully assembled in a factory. The two modules are brought together on-site, where a simple foundation will do. This foundation is also made out of demolition waste materials. Making the foundation and placing the two modules can be done in just one day. The paper describes this exciting students’ project from start until realization of a prototypes. Principles of the way demolition waste is applied are also described, as well as the way Trek-Ins are constructed
