GREENHOUSE embodies the classic look of a wooden barn and the typical structure of Dutch greenhouses: reused materials combined with DIY community-based building for a low-impact and comfortable living environment.



After a long restoration, we are proud to present the end result of Superuse co-founder Césare Peeren’s home. A beautiful example of how our cities could evolve, re-using existing housing and local material flows.



Reusing building materials is common sense. But is it feasible? How can we make it happen? This video gives an insight into the construction industry's waste problem and encourages more reuse amongst construction professionals.



At Superuse, waste rotor blades are seen as structural and aesthetic elements for large-scale, worldwide adoption in design and architecture. This post resumes some examples developed across the Netherlands.

This platform was created by Denis Guzzo in 2018, with the scope of facilitating knowledge exchange on reuse, in the field of architecture and design.

In the modern era, architecture and the building industry are creating thirty per cent of waste worldwide.

Waste in nature does not exist. From nature, we can still learn how to analyze and improve our production cycles, saving resources and decreasing the impact we have on the planet.

Denis Guzzo

is a documentary artist and producer who graduated in communication design from the Royal Academy of Arts in Te Hague, the Netherlands, in 2010.


He intensively documented the work of Superuse Studios. His photographs were published in magazines and platforms such as A+U, BBC, Icon, Metropolis M, New York Times, and Volume, in many books and on book covers.

“Pollution is nothing but the resources we are not harvesting.   We allow them to disperse because we’ve been ignorant of their value.”

Cèsare Peeren

"Powered by oil, we have dug out more than enough resources. Now it is time to reuse and cascade the materials we have around us; through endless loops of design and re-design.”
