Spatial design studio Overtreders W and architecture office Bureau SLA have finished the first 100% marktplaats building in
the Netherlands. All building materials of which this
coffee bar was made, are bought second hand on marktplaats.nl, the
dutch eBay. Nevertheless, the pavilion looks brand new.
The construction of the bar consistst
of 3 temporary hospital units. One of the units was given new facades
made entirely of old windows and a roof of old skylights, this unit
contains a bar and toilets. The other units surround the terrace. The
whole pavilion can be closed with large shutters.
Our first purchase was a second hand
van, to collect the materials from all over The Netherlands. After
that we bought the hospital units, 42 windows, a few thousands meters
of wood, 55 liters of paint, two toilet bowls and a lot more.
During the building process, we
interviewed all people involved in the project, among them about a
hundred people we bought materials from. All the interviews are on
the website www.hetkomtaltijdgoed.nl
