Works

Space Available Studio creates a series of annual case studies that explore nature-based and circular design systems. Our projects and research are brought to life through the mediums of art, architecture, design, conversations and collaboration – spaces, products and communications that work in alignment with the ecosystems they exist within. 

Each case study is based on an environmental challenge we’d like to solve.

Radical Living Structure

Counter Culture Living in the 21st century.

Inspired by the DIY modular approach of Ken Isaacs ‘Living Structures’ (1974).

Low impact, modular and self-sufficient. Interchangeable from global locations for new nomadic living. Move and leave no footprint on the land.

An inter-connective link allows people to swap homes easily when traveling.

A 'waste to energy' system. Off-grid and self-sufficient within a community-led ‘back to the land regenerative system.

Made from recycled plastic and bio-based structure. Easy to assemble and disassemble.

The project is a collaboration with the architects of Sidarta and Sandjaja.

Peggy Gou x Space Available

Space Available has teamed up with Peggy Gou to recycle and redesign plastic trash in Java, Indonesia; the second biggest polluter of plastic in the world.

Our aim is to create awareness of the plastic pollution crises and inspire change through circular design and culture.

Using waste plastic not only helps to clean oceans and landfills but also creates further awareness on the issues we are facing in today's world.

20% of the profits from this collection will go towards our official partners at the Sumatran Orangutan Society.

Alex Olson x Space AvailablE

A collection of bottle-holders and sun hats created in collaboration with Alex Olson – pro-skater, music producer and founder of Call Me 917 and Bianca Chandon. 

Each product is made from recycled post-industrial plastic rope with sustainable bamboo frames and is hand-woven by Balinese artist Nano Uhero, supporting the preservation of an increasingly rare local craft. 

The recycled materials for this collection are collected from factories in Jakarta and other parts of Java. This collection is intended to transform our mindset around industrial waste. 

We believe in making space for nature. 20% of the profits from this collection are donated to our official partners, The Sumatran Orangutan Society, helping regenerate Indonesian forests and protect endangered orangutans.

Ican Harem x Space Available

We collaborated with artist and fashion designer Ican Harem to highlight the concept of radical upcycling. Harem is a key player in the upcycling and reworking of waste materials in Indonesia – old garments and objects rehashed into something new. 

Together, we hosted our first live upcycling workshop based on the notion of RE3: Reconnect, Reimagine and Redesign. Harem talked us through his process of sourcing used clothes, finding harmony in clashes and using sewing machines and hand-stitching to create a new experience from items of the past.
