Recycled Bottle Wall

So here at CEI we like to be innovative... so when we took on a project for a local landfill facility had the opportunity to do something unique in the facilities management building we designed.

Robert Parlane who is the lead Architect on the project came up with an idea of using 500 ml plastic bottles Incorporated into a feature wall. This wall also features strip lighting built into the frame to light up the bottles which are filled with distilled water.

Here is a photo of the mock-up wall that Robert built himself.... apparently the staff here helped him out by drinking numerous bottles of Coke!

We had to model the wall in our Revit model so I developed a family for the bottle and then built the wall in Revit!

The Wall as used in the project

Cool eh!
Cant wait to see it built in the building...



  1. A perfect feature wall in say a Coke factory office

  2. I bet Nathan helped drink the Coke.

  3. Do you still have the water bottle family? I'm looking do something similar for my project :)

  4. You bet, I'll update the posting and add a link to download the family.

  5. Hi there,

    Is the revit file still available? Thankyou!

    1. Sorry, I took a look but I couldent find the file.
