This research is aimed at studying how the application of used plastic water bottles can be a material in design absorbed effectively and efficiently into the design of sustainable recreational spaces in: Interior Architecture, Furniture Design, Exhibition and Display and Landscape Design. The researcher will look into the ability of design to solve environmental challenges through recycling at the same meeting demand for functional products in recreational space resulting into a “win, win” situations. The researcher will aim at investigating how the different designers have venture into sustainability through different themes with major emphasis being on recycling for develop product that safeguard the environment and at the same time meet functionality. The researcher will therefore review literal publication and productions from renowned designers and authors to develop a scope on what has already been done and what has not. A field study will be conducted by the researcher to determine materials currently preferred in designing such space, reasons to these preferences and the impacts resulting from the use of such material. This will be aimed at establishing the need. Based on the facts obtained from the field, the researcher will then analysis the data draw conclusions and finally draft recommendations towards developing sustainable recreational spaces through applying used plastic water bottles. In this case reference will be to Gayaza-Wakiso District. The research will be segmented into five main chapters: chapter one will contain the introduction and background, problem statement, objectives, research questions, significance and scope of study. Chapter two will be a critical analysis of theoretical literature on recycling and how it has contributed to interior design. The researcher will also carry an analytical review aimed at identifying gaps to be filled to the existing knowledge. Chapter three will outline Research Design the Methodology used by the researcher. Chapter four will carry the site analysis, presentation and interpretation of findings while chapter five will be summary of the findings, and recommendations on the four major areas of interior design.
