Adaptive Re-Use =



A Daily Dose of Architecture:

FNP Architekten designed this "house within a house" for a decrepit 18th c. "pigsty" structure. It's called S(ch)austall (saustall=pigsty / schaustall = showroom) + won the 2005 AR Award for Emerging Architecture.

My thoughts = I just find this structure incredibly beautiful and innovative without thinking too much or adding unnecessary embellishments. I especially love how the wood container is designed to narrowly fit within the structure, yet still not touch the original stone walls. How graceful...and quite angelic.
