I'm all for saving buildings, so this project by FNP-Architekten caught my eye. I've seen others like it, mostly with barns, but this one's deconstructed look makes it completely intriguing. As the exterior crumbles, the interior is the actual structure. Kind of cool. WIth Bouler Design Group converting the original brick Doxsee Clam Building in Islip into a restaurant, it becomes a balance of what to save and what meets current codes and needs. Certainly a residence is far less complicated in terms of both, but retrofitting buildings is an art in itself.
