ParadigmGallery's insight:

 

"The interior features a lot of elements from old times that have been manually restored. Thanks to large windows in metal frames there is a lot of natural light. This loft is a nice example that even raw materials can be used to create a warm, comfortable and cozy living space." DigsDigs

Family-Friendly Renovation of a Brick Warehouse in Alabama

Family-Friendly Renovation of a Brick Warehouse in Alabama | Raw and Real Interior Design | Scoop.it
In Alabama, a commercial building with a multifarious past begins a fresh chapter for a young family after a modern renovation.
ParadigmGallery's insight:

Love, love, love....contrasting to the student apartments around Auburn University, this industrial space was built in 1920 as a mercantile space in a thriving African-American neighborhood during segregation.The building has since hosted several pool halls, a barbershop, a Baptist church, a few cab companies, several restaurants, and, rather dubiously, a “fish shop.”

 

When the Hills purchased the building, they were unaware of its backstory —it was merely a termite-infested plumbing storehouse with a promising brick-and-concrete exterior. “During construction our neighbors kept coming up and sharing stories about getting their hair cut here, or eating here when it was a cafe,” David says. “We realized we had to be a little more careful. This thing had a life, a more interesting life, than we had ever imagined. We kind of stepped back a little bit and didn’t do some of the architectural moves that we originally thought we were going to do.”

 

The story is very interesting and the journey of renovating this building had some important messages for anyone taking on a project like this.

 

Bravo....Hill Family

Aircon House– a DIY project to beat them all | Raw and Real Interior Design | Scoop.it
How on earth do you go about converting all 6,000 square foot of a one-time industrial building into a habitable living space? John Crace finds out
ParadigmGallery's insight:

Aircon House started out as a rocking-horse factory in the 19th century, and over the years has seen life as a stage set factory, a builders' merchants and an air-conditioning fittings factory (hence its name).

The owners, Eric Guibert and Robin Pembrooke, simply wanted more space. They certainly got it – 6,000 square feet of it.

 

Aircon House is charming. In this article you will see the beginning conversion efforts, but they had big plans for their home.
