Location: Philadelphia, Penn., USA
Architect: OnionFlats

For 80 years, this was the site of Capital Meats, a meat packing plant. In 1999, the seven crumbling structures began their transformation into Capital Flats, comprising eight residential dwellings. Capital Flats is just one of countless factories, plants, and industrial spaces everywhere that have been transformed into single-and multi-family dwellings.
