Have you ever wondered if it would be possible to build some premises entirely of recycled materials? Well, here’s one. It’s the “Noorderparkbar” Coffee Shop and it’s in the Netherlands.

It was built by Overtreders W entirely from materials purchased on the Dutch version of e-bay.

The roof is made entirely of old skylights.

There are giant barn-like shutters surrounding the pavilion, which close at the end of the day, making it look like a giant container.
