The concept applied in the “House of Dance” project,  former “Spanish House” is based on the use, first of all, recycled, recyclable and natural materials that contribute to reducing environmental pollution, saving energy and natural resources, but also reducing waste in landfills that has been a big problem for decades when it comes to the disposal of building materials. By using recycled materials, in addition to preserve the environment, savings are also made in the field of economy, because already used materials are used, which is far cheaper than the production of new, unused materials. These materials were used both during the construction of the structure, heat and sound insulation, and in the interior in the form of windows and doors, floor and wall coverings. In addition to recycled materials, the emphasis is also on the assembly-disassembly system of partition walls that enable changes in the interior without much pollution and with significantly less energy consumption. These partition walls offer the possibility of relatively quick and simple changes in the arrangement of rooms if there is a need for it. The concepts applied to the House of Dance are based on sustainable architecture and strive to preserve the environment and use materials as long as possible, the “cradle to cradle” concept,  life cycle that is circular in nature, where after the end of use on one object, the materials are reused for the construction of another building, without disposal in landfills and accumulation of construction waste.
