repurposing at its best

I recently came across these inspiring adaptive re-uses of commercial space which prove that existing buildings and infrastructure can most definitely be used to accommodate new and growing needs.  Just like with homes, transforming a space into what you need for today is a sustainable option that also creates great character.

 This shop occupies a vault beneath an old railway viaduct in Zurich.

 This fantastic gallery was transformed from a Swiss service station.
