House at a Lake by BBSC Architects

BBSC Architects designed this house at a lake in Belgium.










Project description

As the house is situated near a lake the facade facing the lake is one large window to take in the stunning view. All living and sleeping quarters look out over the garden and the lake. A central void connects the groundfloor with the first floor and links the cozy, raised up sitting area with the kitchen and eating area. The large open fire place between the void and eating area aids in creating different zones while maintaining one flowing living area.

On the first floor the landing opens up towards the void; seated at the balustrade that is worked out as a desk one can enjoy a stunning view of the lake.

Through the use of an acoustic plaster on the ceilings it is possible to reach the highest level of comfort while enjoying the size and openness of the living area with its abundance of natural light.

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.
