Another Factory Conversion

This one-time commercial bakery has been converted into an artist's loft and studios as is happening all over the city. I like how the bars needed for the commercial usage have been repurposed to hold back a window box of geraniums caught here in the light of early autumn. A little hidden treasure!

A treasure indeed, love the old brickwork!

It's wonderful that these old buildings are being put to good use. The same thing is happening in many of our cities, too. These not only put old buildings to good use but bring new life to the urban core.

Nicely composed, the brick and flowers juxtaposed are just right!

Lovely how the flowers soften the brick and iron.

I like the contrast of the brick and the flowers. Glad these buildings are finding a new use!

Very clever work on that window box!

Nice patterns.

If we can't have them working as factories, this is a good second-best.

I'd love to find myself a studio like this.

Yes, nice use of what was already there.

Great angle and light on this interesting post. A haven for artists I'd guess.
