Flat pack cardboard stools around a recycled wooden table provide a space to relax and meet people during the agitated Dutch design event.

Tucked under a busy highway in Eindhoven’s Strijp-S area is a wonderful new space that was created by local designer Piet Hein Eek and directed by the “Drenthe Village Angels.” The space, which was created using recycled doors and windows, was first opened during Dutch Design Week 2012. The space works as a local community center throughout the year, where residents can get together over tea and coffee.

The use of recycled doors and windows makes a whimsical wall that lets plenty of natural light into the space. With a beautiful sustainable aesthetic that is both imaginative and fun, the Drenthe Village Headquarters provides a safe space for everybody to enjoy making the area a better place to live in.
