transformations: industrial buildings under a new lens of use. A new purpose. A new life

The term reuse in architecture means to give the building a new life. The art of transforming explores the link between past and future.
The starting point is the same in terms of physical condition, yet the use and purpose are quite different because they belong to different times, unveiling new meanings and potentialities.
The reuse and transformation of a building - artisan in this case - are almost a signature pattern in GEZA’s practice: a chance to discover new positive features lead by a sustainable and poetic process.
