Outstanding adaptive reuse. I bet there have been numerous old industrial buildings demolished that would have been so much better suited to residential adaptation. Pity.

Almost a brutalist piece but for the impression that the glazing is holding up the heavy concrete lid.
Haus Szelpal / Felber Szélpal Architekten
I don't know what this is but it is compelling and seriously cantilevered. Looks like shipping container. Still nice fishing spot.
Definitely one way to guarantee you aren't invited to any neighborhood parties. Certainly easy to give directions to "yeah down 12th street, first big odd shaped red striped house on the left. Well only odd shaped striped house in Korea actually, not hard to find."
Really fantastic, obviously not a used canal anymore and I hope they don't get too many waves but it is so under minimal in its approach and materials.
A boathouse style home – why not? German architect Susanne Nobis, as both the architect and the owner of this live work house, puts minimalist living at the forefront of this boat inspired design. Located by Lake Starnberg, a popular southern Bavarian recreation area near Munich, this house aptly boasts an interior that resembles the interior of a rustic row boat, inverted to form the gabled ceiling and enclosed in glass.
I can usually do without Zaha Hadid and her unconventional for the sake of being unconventional designs but this one is quite nice. Perhaps it is the residential application vs. the usual public works types projects. Either way very nice.
Love this solution to multi-use housing!

I hope to visit this one day when it is complete and I am still young enough to able to appreciate its madness and soaring vision! Gaudi was a real Starchitect!
Would be nice to see this when the foliage fills in, and that is a huge trellis!
