Abstract: With e-commerce on the rise, products are more readily available to customer with a touch of the button. The competitively low prices also allow users to replace the products even before it reaches the end of its life cycle. This does not apply to only small products but also large products examples like furniture (Hunter, 2019). This project is not just about extending the life cycle and creating a circular economy, but to bring awareness and uncover the scenes beyond the beautiful garden city. When you ask about what people think of Singapore, they will tell you about the iconic monuments and the clean and green city. Earning its name as a garden city where greenery flourished among the high concrete buildings. However, they tend to forget about the scenes that are not often publicize to the public. The author wants to bring attention to bulky household and commercial waste that are being thrown away without reconsideration and contributing to the nation waste. This project aimed to provide a view that is not commonly seen to the public. It focuses on salvaged and natural materials, ranging from salvaged household furniture to industrial waste. Large and often discarded yet people could turn a blind eye when chanced upon them.
