Elysium 154 House by BVN Architecture

BVN Architecture have designed the Elysium 154 House in Noosa, Queensland, Australia.









From the architects

The Elysium 154, Noosa project is a residential development for the last sub-division within the highly desired Noosa Heads postcode. The large site consisting of 189 house allotments, communal leisure facilities (tennis courts, health spa, aquatic facilities) parkland and nature reserves is located inland from the Noosa coastline adjacent to Lake Weyba. Theundulating, picturesque landscape of the site retains vast pockets of existing vegetation and is afforded distant views to the Sunshine Coast hinterland beyond.

This house enjoys a truly wonderful site, which slopes gently from the street on the south toward a small park and openspace to the north. The softly, sweeping, curved walls and forms which identify this house are generated by an intuitive response to achieve both the north-east aspect and views to the northern parkland areas. The external textured wall finishes fold back into the interior of the dwelling along walls and ceilings where carefully detailed edges and transitions with smooth internal walls allow the threshold between inside and out to be distorted. Drawing the external garden and pool spaces into the building has amplified the sense of subtropical luxury.

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.
