Old Interiors in Architecture: Showcase

Architectural heritage of a human kind belongs to the most significant or even grand historical achievements, which will last quite long for the new generations to observe, feel the connection with ancestors, and get inspired by their works while creating their own masterpieces. Graphic designers do not hesitate to make their contribution to the process of preserving and showing us the magnificent beauty of the architecture: the photographs of these creative artists underline the style of the buildings or castles interiors, make the subtle details more vivid, and focus our attention on the age and shabbiness of the buildings.

In fact, these architectural pieces may be shabby, but they are not worse for that! They inspire respect to those who created such splendid buildings; they make us remember and value the past, while planning and thinking about our future.

The selection of the best old interior photographs is presented below. Take a look at them and you will sense the history and age, you will feel the breeze from the past… Some of these interiors look gothic and even scary – such interiors are definitely associated with vampires; others seem to have absorbed the memories about people and events ever taken place there; and some photographs expressively show us that everything must come to an end eventually… Although some interiors here look sad, they also imply the raise of something new and better on their spots, reminding us that we should remember the past to be able to build the future.
