Disused Steel Mill Yard In Luxembourg Undergoes Smart Redesign Without Forgetting Its Past | green streets | Scoop.it

Similar to New York City's Highline, this disused and grim industrial area in the south of Luxembourg has been revived into a pleasant public space without deleting its past. 

LUX Stahlhof Belval-Ouest is an urban oasis between residential buildings and strange looking furnaces from the former steel industry. The space has pretty much been conserved and made friendly by incorporating plants and creating seating areas into the structures. The old industrial elements have basically been left in place as well as mosses and birch, and new designs and plants have been added to revive the space.
