Juerg Judin had different dreams then most when passing an abandoned Shell station in the Schöneberg neighborhood of Berlin—he dreamed of home.

And so he made his dream house come true, converted that Shell gas station into a house. At over 4,000 square feet, he definitely built way beyond the original structure—but it’s not like there are many cookie-cutter ways to build a house on such a lot.

Originally from Zrich, Juerg Judin didn’t just stop at the physical building—he spent over $500,000 on an outdoor garden as well.

Finally, a gas station I wouldn’t mind chilling around.
