As part of NYCxDesign, Lothian Salvage had the incredible opportunity to showcase some of our work in Times Square for Hub Culture Design Studio at the Design Pavilion. In collaboration with Brady Johnson and Hub Culture, as well as Pat Achenbach, SABIC, McDonough Innovation, and Angel Wing Airways, we displayed two units designed and fabricated by our founder Amanda Adams. The installation was at the south entrance to Times Square at 42nd Street and Broadway.
The mobile spaces were used as a broadcast studio, lounge area, and virtual reality parlor while in Times Square. The units are currently being shipped to Bermuda to serve as hospitality suites and hotel rooms at the Hub Culture Innovation Campus and Beach Club at Ariel Sands.
The two units consist of 20ft shipping containers, retrofit with repurposed materials such as wood pallets, reclaimed tin, and paneled doors. The walls, floors and bed frame were made using recycled wood pallets. Amanda found salvaged tin from a deconstructed corn crib in Iowa to decorate the ceilings. The accent walls were fabricated using repurposed, solid oak paneled doors. Reclaimed copper plumbing makes up the corner closet, and functions as both decoration and hanging space. Check out the pictures below to get a sense of how we used these materials:
