Let me start this sunny Friday by sharing this beautiful renovated old blacksmith's warehouse on the Greek island of Lesbos.
This stunning old blacksmith's warehouse has been converted with lots of light wood, bright white walls and concrete floor. It's the second home of Dorte Mandrup-Poulsen and two other Danish architects (Louis Becker and Jens Thomas Arnfred).
“It’s important when you convert an old building to be careful not to remove the soul of what was there. If everything is renewed, it becomes too perfect,” Dorte says. Therefore they preserved the blacksmith equipment, like the traditional iron stove, old metal tables and the original iron windows, which are among her favorite features because they frame the seaside views throughout the home. Imperfections tell the history of this home.
