Because Architecture is the mother of all art…..#2

The Black Pearl, Rotterdam.
Prepared to be blown away!? This really is architecture at it’s best, designed by Studio and Zecc Architects, the construction of this house is based on an experiment between time and space where the facade is approximately 100 years old. Doubling up as a home and workshop, it was entirely redesigned and painted in a shiny black oil exterior. The window frames and the glass of the existing facade are finished in the same black tones and almost camouflaged. Contemporary windows made from steel frames have been inserted to form new windows; these intersect the old while creating a new relation between the original and the new interpretation of the house behind it.

Exceptional, made me gasp with gleeeeeee!
