18 Old Buildings That Have Found New Life And Have Been Transformed Into Very Original Places

Who said that the best ideas of design and architecture always give life to new projects, ultra-modern and avant-garde buildings? The tendency to recycle, reuse, and re-adapt old and disused objects is also a reality for buildings that have now had their day and are not as “fresh” as before.

So buildings, structures, and even old means of transportation, with a good dose of creativity and imagination, can find new life and be transformed into something else. Would you think that a plane could accommodate a fast food restaurant? Or that an old church could become a unique sports center with a swimming pool? If you think that’s impossible, you haven’t yet seen the photos we have gathered below: marvel at these old buildings that have had a second youth!
