Our Favourites: Three Revitalized Buildings
We show you three exciting solutions around the topic of conversion. These three buildings are coming back to life inside: An old commercial building in Beijing, a residential building in Cuneo and a historical Sevkabel factory in St. Petersburg.
Hidden behind the traditional façade of a commercial building, there is now a guesthouse featuring a restaurant and public space. The floor plan is divided into six layers, each of which runs parallel to the street and is separated from the others by likewise linear courtyards. The clear structure is countered by transparent, translucent and reflective materials in the interior space.
