Adaptive Reuse

Adaptive reuse repurpose old buildings for new uses.

We are huge fans of adaptive reuse design, repurposing buildings and objects for modern functions in an environmentally friendly way
.
Initiatives to improve the sustainability of buildings have tended to focus on new construction projects rather than existing ones. One reason is the tendency to regard old buildings as products with a limited useful life that have to be eventually discarded and demolished.

The adaptive reuse design would be given an adaptSTAR star rating similar to the new building rating system.

Here we share excellent examples of amazing adaptive reuse architecture projects from around the globe.
