Unusual homes: Cool conversionsBy Berit Griffin, Marvin Windows
We love unusual homes, and MSN Real Estate has an awesome slideshow about unusual apartments all over the world. Here are a few of our favorites. Check out the rest here.
Ever wonder where old shipping containers go to die? Thanks to some creative ingenuity, Container City in London is making them into beautiful live-work spaces for artists. They even managed to use 80 percent recycled materials to build these apartments.
Philadelphia’s Packard Motor Car Building once manufactured cars in a slightly unusual way: instead of going through a large horizontal plant, they went from floor to floor in a space saving and beautiful building. It’s a gorgeous condo conversion, and the interior is beautiful with those large windows.
You don’t have to get arrested to live at The Police Building in New York…you’ll just need a couple million to move into this Beaux Arts beauty.
Who would have thought a water tower could be so lovely and livable? The Watertower of Living’s (Soest, Netherlands) circular beauty makes for interestingly curved rooms.
