Raw ceilings, unplastered walls, and visible concrete girders meet innovative conversion ideas, creative shapes, and modern materials – Rough Interiors presents 55 projects whose designers used the existing historic substance as the basis for their creative processes. The magic of patina and traces of the past are maintained and deliberately integrated into the design concept. 

Clashes, contrasts, and frictions become the underlying principle. A host of different ideas, interventions, and measures fill forgotten and abandoned buildings with new life. Whether low budget or high-end, music academy or doctor’s clinic, trendy restaurant or loft apartment, the interiors of each individual project are distinguished by an exciting interplay of history and the present age.
