Goldenhen, the Australian studio, known for unusual ways of using materials of daily use to create marvels, has yet again come up with their new creation- a life-sized home called “The Original Dream”, made of egg cartons.

The structure, made by stacking up hundreds of reused cartons like Lego blocks was modeled after Howard Arkley’s well-known painting, Family Home: Suburban Exterior 1993. The painting is considered to be the Australian dream of suburban living. The creators re-imagined the concept of the dream home and the end result is an awesome structure made of recycled and colored egg cartons and egg trays.

The whole lot of colored cartons was stacked upon a simple wood frame structure that functions as a foundation for these cartons. The entire lot appears similar to the structures built with Lego bricks.

The Original Dream is part of a series of ‘Eggo’ installations that utilize recycled egg cartons. In fact, this is considered to the first “Eggo” installation exhibition.

A red brick yard fence, a cricket pitch, outdoor clothes drying rack, and lots of grass made out of egg trays. The creative venture underlines the catch phrase, “Leggo my Eggo.”
