Can you believe these stunning interiors once transported cars across a Copenhagen waterway? I know, I couldn’t believe it either. Danish architect Nils Jeppe Hansen transformed this ferryboat into the offices for his design firm, DSA ARK Studio. Hansen kept the boat’s original structure intact and added a sculptural zinc box with a row of skylights on either side and solar panels on the roof. I think it’s a unique concept. I’m smitten by all these design studios that are revolutionizing the house boat image and creating sophisticated floating habitats like this one. I’m sure this boat is glad to have put its transporting days behind it to enjoy a new serene and stylish life on waterfront.

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.
