I was asked to redesign a space within college, and incorporate sustainable practices within the space. I chose the courtyard to redesign, I have added a fresh fruit and veg stall, and a mini plantation to grow the produce in. The cafe can sell this freshly grown produce which cuts out transportation costs and does not use emissions in the transport of the goods, thus reduces the colleges carbon footprint.
More additions are the multiple recycling bin stand, and the wooden ramp made from recycled wood, this allows disabled access into the building, as well as hand trucks to move heavy items. With the wood being recycled this is reusing it in a way which is beneficial and practical.
The recycle bins feature a glass, plastic, paper and general waste bin. This will encourage students to throw glass bottles, plastic and paper in the specific sections that then will be recycled properly and efficiently.
