  1. This should go without saying, as long as the bones are considered safe. The idea of using pre-existing structures for other purposes than originally intended is simply amazing and usually provides an amazing canvas for new designers, architects and contractors to work with.

  2. Makes sense to reuse old buildings instead of demolishing them to build new ones. Saves on resources, and preserves some historical context. Interesting article.

  3. I think its a neat idea, upgrading a building instead of demolishing it. Also reusing a building may be more efficient as it’ll save time and money.
