Unique Home Designs: Adaptive Reuse

Some of the most creative design solutions I've seen were from existing buildings re-purposed for another use. The design constraints of the existing structure often results to innovative out of the box solutions. Whether if its a freight container, a barn or a silo these designers offer some inspiring ideas to to arrive at a design that caters their clients needs.

Back when I was still a student, I have always wanted to redesign an old warehouse into a modern home. I had a lot of sketches and concepts visualizing how these would come out. I always wondered about the possibilities of redesign those old abandoned buildings to make them useful again.
