This is a guest post from Antonina of OpenBuildings & sister site www.clippings.com! Below you will see thematic selections of inspirational architecture & design, which might help you start your very own design project and get matched with design professionals.
In recent years, gentrification and the adapitve reuse of (industrial) buildings that goes with it has become a sort of a fashion in dwelling. The valuable aspect of this trend is that it results in original and surprising architecture in which the specific history of a place or a structure is preserved and another layer is added to it. Have you ever tried to imagine what it would be like to inhabit a space originally designed for purposes far different from the residential – a recycled home?
