Transforming old warehouse, train stations, and factories into beautiful office spaces, restaurants, and apartment buildings is an increasingly popular trend in modern architecture. With historical charm and character that can’t be replicated, these spaces are highly sought after. The interiors of these spaces use existing bricks, exposed beams, and natural metal to create raw, unfinished looks. Cool grays and neutral tones help to create modern, industrial spaces.
