Throughout the world, more and more buildings of rich cultural and architectural value are being forgotten about, even abandoned.
Adaptive reuse allows the heritage of the building to be preserved while breathing new life into an old structure.
Adaptive reuse is gaining traction as a tangible way of regenerating urban spaces and synthesizing old and new.
By repurposing an existing structure into something new, we also circumvent the negative impacts of construction on communities and the environment.
The benefits of successful adaptive reuse are far-reaching. Aside from the restoration and repair of heritage structures, adaptive reuse may involve a new construction to host additional functions. Buildings can be repurposed for cultural enrichment such as a beautiful art gallery, providing new economic opportunities.
