‘Recycled’ Architecture

Can you recycle architecture? Well, I guess that only means you put a building designed for a particular purpose to some other use (once the original purpose becomes redundant), rather than breaking apart the whole building and starting afresh again. While you’re giving a ‘second life’ to the building itself, you do save a lot of stuff in the bargain…..and you also contribute to the ‘green’ concept. That’s why I liked this ‘Barn’ House so much. Architect Rita Huys of Buro2 skillfully transformed this agricultural icon into a beautiful, modern dwelling.
