Architect Zaigas Gailes Birojs has transformed an abandoned soviet fish factory in Kaltene, Latvia  into a beautiful modern residence. Situated on the coast of an island in the Baltic Sea, the industrial-chic home is a stunning example of adaptive reuse  that comes complete with a shiny nautilus-inspired bathhouse . The greenest buildings are those that are never built, so we’re always inspired by projects that rejuvenate existing architecture and infuse it with new life.
