Designs that make us go wow

Sometimes, despite being renowned for our innovative design, something comes along that makes us want to stand back and applaud its design brilliance.

Amazing designs

We’ve all done it, no matter how fantastic we are at designing our own schemes – walked into somewhere, past somewhere or just seen somewhere in a magazine that has taken our breath away and made us go ‘Wow!’.

In Paris they’ve turned abandoned Metro stations (their version of London’s Tube) into some of the most jaw dropping new uses we’ve seen.

Look at this swimming pool formed out of an abandoned metro station neglected for 75 years – it is gorgeous.

It is the inspiration of Paris mayoral candidate, Nathalie Koziuscot-Morizet, who would become the first female to ever hold the post in the capital if she wins. Nathalie has released the first sketches of her plans to reclaim the city of light’s abandoned stations.

And we wholeheartedly approve.

Nathalie has plans to transform the stations into a swimming pool, a theatre, a restaurant, an art gallery and a nightclub. Participating architects Manal Rachdi and Nicolas Laisné are only getting started however, and these are just a few examples from their vault of ideas should Nathalie win the elections in March.

We don’t know about you, but Nathalie would certainly win our vote for her gorgeous ideas to breathe new life into the sub-terranean city of light.

Simply stunning.
