Re-purposing With A Purpose: Recycled Buildings Bring Back Industry

Re-purposed buildings are not a new trend. For centuries, retailers, restaurateurs and business owners of all kinds have found ways to fit their concepts into unconventional spaces. However, as trends have evolved, there has been a boom in restoring old and unused spaces into fresh, vibrant locations again.

Today we look at some of the most creative redesign concepts to see what can be done with spaces that most would think of as inhospitable.

Retail

Recently, retailers are adding an identity and theme to their stores by re-purposing old buildings. Whether it is a hollowed out factory or even an abandoned firehouse, retailers are becoming eye-catching locations thanks to former eye sores.

Restaurants

Restaurants come in all shapes and sizes, from traditional sit down experiences to grab and go food trucks. Naturally, the hospitality industry lends itself to re-purposed spaces of all kinds.

Churches

Churches are built with as defined a purpose as almost anything. However, that does not mean they cannot be redefined upon the years neglect. Whether it is for work or play, houses of worship can be used by sinners and saints alike.

Office Space

Modern companies are continuing to seek out new office spaces to separate themselves from typical mundane cubicle-laden floor plans.
