Finally made it to Detoit and this is one of the decayed beauties i got to visit. An English-Gothic style church abandoned since 2010; one of the most magnificent ventures so far! As renovation work has started since 2014, this awesome spot might be converted soon.Glad to have made it in!
One more cooling tower during our tour the same day! No matter how similar it might look like to the last one I shared, the big hole in the middle of it adds a very mysterious and unique element to it. Grey and green are the mail colors here. An amazing symmetry of tall, wide lines and homocentric perspectives make this peculiar site almost magic!
A massive construction with beautiful perspectives, depth of field and lines. The wooden patterns on the floor make a great contrast to the concrete covering the rest of the tower. The small house in the middle adds extra mystery and interest to the spot, making it a really unique location. Undoubtedly one of my favorite industrial beauties so far!
This abandoned crypt has been on my list for quite some time now, when I finally went for a Sunday morning walk at the cemetery. A mild light is coming down from the tiny openings on the ceilings making its humid, dark corridors with the names engraved on stone and the few colorful flowers bright enough to walk across them and feel the intensity of such a place!
Villa Spar is the first modern architecture abandoned villa I managed to do so far. Contemporary design and minimalist elements found here. Mix of wood, glass, stone and marble in a rather empty spot with an amazing swimming pool and an imposing living room!
I paid this place a visit as it was found on our way during our usual Sunday urbex trip. Although it is not in the best condition, it could provide me with some good shots of the doctor’s personal belongings. Some interesting compositions of forgotten wine glasses, medicines and books. The lovely chamber with the many windows and the antique bed as well as the living room with view to the backyard are my favorites of this place!
A recently abandoned location. Downstairs there is a beautifully furnished living room with a stone fireplace and many antique paintings. The forgotten teapots and sugar cubes together with the flower bouquet made this place so alive! Not that much to see upstairs apart from the big bedroom dressed in orange tapestry and the bathroom which is undoubtedly the funkiest spot of the villa! The owner must had been interested in tannery as leather and fur of various animals were found in the basement.
This is a former military communications center. Built in 1969 and active for more than 40 years, it is now abandoned until new construction plans for a new satelite communications center are put into practice. The abandoned spot is now consisting of many empty rooms and forgotten engines and a massive satellite antenna which is the most impressive part of the complex!
Have been passing by this spot every single time I visited Antwerp and I was always wondering about how to get in! Had seen some amazing shots of the interior architecture, which made me try harder and find a way to make my own. And this time it finally happened! This Stock Exchange was the first building in the world designed as stock exchange and trade exchange. Built in 1531 by Domien de Waghemakere, the entire complex burned down in 1858. The present construction is the 19th century neo-gothic renovation. All but abandoned for more than a decade until future construction plans are approved, this place is pure magic!
