The UK’s┬ávintage buses have been reused for all sorts of purposes over the years, especially London’s famous Routemasters, which were retired from England’s capital in December 2005. This particularly inspired example of a repurposed Bristol Lodekka, once used in Scotland, found its way to New Orleans and became the pool house of artist Miranda Lake.


Featured on Apartment Therapy, Miranda, who also has a guest house for rent, described the double-decker retro refurb as “one big shiny, giant happy pill you can actually get inside of.”


Hat tip to Messy Nessy.

Edit: this article originally stated, mistakenly, that this was an old London Routemaster bus. It is in fact a Scottish Bus Group Bristol Lodekka. Thanks to skodaalan and Royale431 who pointed this out to us in the comments.
