When a building such as a factory, an office or even odd spaces such as a church or a light tower are no longer used they get abandoned. There’s not much you can do with them, given their specific designs. However, ambitious architects and designers manage to revive these spaces and turn them into commercial spaces or cozy homes. This apartment, for example, is inside a former radio factory.
The loft belongs to The 5000 sqm building which was originally built for the company ‘Palco’, one of the largest manufacturers for T-shirts in Greece and is currently converted into a series of large contemporary residential lofts on the upper floors, whereas the street level is transformed into a large and open cultural space called The Hub.
A stunning Live/Work loft in a well-known London warehouse conversion with a private courtyard just off Kingsland Road. The design and quality is outstanding and takes the best advantages of the original features and combines brilliantly with contemporary functionality.
Sometimes it is hard to build your own house especially when you are not an expert and you do not have a fortune. Here it is an example which may help make an idea of what you can do in case you are the owner of an old place which may become your home and working area at the same time.
