Drooling over all these examples. Fantastic point made here that these re-purposed industrial spaces hold such rich story and character. They often don't need a lot more decoration, because the drama, volume, texture and interest comes ready-made. I think the challenge is how to break down quite large spaces so that they are embracing and comfortable and sociable in scale. But with creative and thoughtful design that is totally possible. I would move into any of the above examples.
