Postcard House by Hufft Projects

Hufft Projects have designed the Postcard House near Table Rock Lake in Missouri.











Description from the architect

The house was commissioned by two brothers as a weekend retreat located on Table Rock Lake in southwest Missouri. It is situated on a peninsula with lake views on three sides. The house sits on columns and utilizes pervious paving. Natural light and ventilation flow strategically through the home enhancing it’s picturesque views and relation to the natural setting. Design decisions regarding form and material choices respect and develop these ideals. Taking inspiration from a vintage Polaroid Camera, the form of the building is intended to frame the scenic setting from every angle – creating ‘postcards’ from within. This house is all about the experience and the views.

The Postcard House is a conventional wood frame construction. Exterior materials consist of prefinished metal panels, and stained cedar siding. The building envelope features spray-foam insulation and thermally improved glazing for superior energy efficiency. High-efficiency forced-air systems heat and cool the house.

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
