You can live comfortably not only in high-rise buildings and private houses, but also in the building of a fire station, granary, church, stables, or even at a cannery. These 5 rooms once served for certain purposes, but over time, for various reasons, they lost their functionality. Now these are cozy and stylish houses where people live.
1. Fire station in Florida (USA)
The area of this two-story house is more than 300 square meters, it has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and its cost is estimated at almost 900 thousand dollars. It is located in Sanford, Florida, United States of America and was built in 1887. In the nineteenth century, it housed a fire department, and now the house belongs to an artist who once worked as a real estate agent. On the first floor, she made an office, and on the second, a space for creativity. The attic is decorated in a loft style and looks very bright and original.
2. Granary in Arizona (USA)
The granary was built in 1955 and has been used for its intended purpose for a long time. But now it is a two-storey house with an area of just over 30 square meters. On the first floor there is a kitchen-living room, and on the second there is a bedroom. Of course, from the outside, the house looks a little like a huge tin can, but inside it turned out to be very cozy.
3. Church of the Romanesque Revival in Manhattan in New York (USA)
Looking at the facade of this Protestant church, built in the 1860s, it is difficult to imagine that there are several modern apartments behind its doors. The area of the house is more than 300 square meters, so there is more than enough living space here. Especially impressive are the grandiose stained glass windows and the penthouse with three bedrooms and a luxurious terrace, which covers an area of almost 50 square meters. By the way, in 2009 the famous British actor Jude Law rented housing here. The mansion is estimated at $ 12.5 million.
4. Stable in Dorset County (UK)
In 1730 this building was used as a stable, but in the twentieth century it was converted into a residential building with an area of more than 400 square meters. However, the building was abandoned and no one had lived there for a long time. The family of a talented designer has recently moved here. In the house, which has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, she has tried to preserve as much of the historical elements as possible, such as wooden beams.
5. Cannery in Philadelphia (Pennsylvania, USA)
This cannery was built in 1880. But at the moment, the production facility has become the home and creative space for the photographer. The living area is almost 100 square meters, the design of the house uses such styles as loft and industrial.
Similar renovations can be found in various localities around the world. For example, in the Swedish airport Arlanda, which is located near Stockholm, the air tower was also turned into luxury apartments.
