When Annie Leonsson moved back to Gothenburg after seven years in Sydney, she landed on her feet. The role of interior designer at White Arkitekter, which even back then applied reuse to furnishing projects, suited Annie perfectly. Eleven years later, Annie is more passionate than ever about reuse, both at work and at home. “I’m currently trying to persuade my family that my grandmother’s old 1920s sofa can actually be cool!”
Last year, we launched the digi-physical service White ReCapture, which has already been used in several projects to identify the reuse potential of buildings in a time- and cost-efficient way. We met the team behind White ReCapture to find out how the service works and how it can make a difference in the transition to net zero.

But is 100% really possible – i.e. not wasting a single thing in a demolition?
