Sustainability is of prime importance in our green hotel in the center of Vienna. Upcycling has always been an interesting concept for us. Therefore, we want to talk about simple Upcycling Tips in our blog on a monthly basis. Upcycling refers to the repurposing of renewable objects. Objects from everyday life are turned into new objects with a new function. This is how production and subsequently the energy consumption can be dramatically reduced. Today we want to give an Upcycling Tip on how to create creative furniture out of pallets – for both the exterior and the interior.
