I love watching heritage pieces transform into something different, something modern. The resulting artifact is so whimsical and beautiful to look at, like a perfect marriage between the past and the future. 

The fact that it’s the “green” thing to do, is just a plus point. Instead of disposing of a piece, when you recycle it to something else, not only are you making it that much more special, but you’re making mama Earth happy as well! 

This week’s article from HBD “Beyond Blank and White” written by Victoria Hittner, shares a similar story of a Singaporean historic unit locally referred to as “black-and-white” transformed into a beautiful, soft modern home for a global family. Take a peek to see how heritage artifacts make for wonderful conversation starters!
