It’s quite common for old structures and buildings to be incorporated into new designs rather than being demolished. It’s a decision based on several factors. One of them is the cost and effort that go into demolishing a building and clearing the site. But, in some cases, like the one here, there’s also another element that is of great importance and that’s the historic significance and beauty of the already existing structure.
This contemporary house used to be a mill. The old walls of the mill have been incorporated into the design of the new structure. They give it character and make the house truly unique. The residence can be found in Dingwall, Scotland and it was a project by Rural Design. It’s hard to believe that such a beautiful structure used to be nothing but ruins.
