Who says all warehouses have to become luxury lofts? This warehouse in Ingolstadt, Germany was refurbished by German architecture firm nbundm* into a sweet skate park run by a local youth group. The warehouse's exterior is mostly unchanged and the interior retains its industrial materials: concrete, brick, plywood, and exposed electrical pipes. The architects wanted the space to feel like a rugged "work-in-progress," not a "piece of posh event architecture." That doesn't mean the architects didn't have some fun, too. The bricks lining the café, for example, are angled outwards—just like the ramps in the main skating room.
