Ballard Remodel by Grouparchitect

Before the remodel


Project description

This home remodel is located just north of the Ballard Locks in Seattle, Washington. The original split-level home configuration was maintained to limit scope of work while rebuilding the central exposed stairway to the new upper floor with access to a roof top deck with views of downtown Seattle and Mount Rainier.

The theme of the project was to explore the destruction of the existing structure and then spatially reconstruct a home in which volume, light, and material could shape spaces which were not otherwise possible due to the limited square footage expansion.

All opportunities to expose structure as well as interstitial spaces were taken on the interior, from uncovering the existing wood decking and floor beams of the main floor to the open wood stair with steel railings. The large cantilevered shed roof provides maximum summer sun shading for interior spaces, preserves the longevity of the exterior siding materials below, and offers partial shelter during the inclement weather months for continued roof deck use.

Sustainable building strategies and materials were utilized wherever possible throughout the project.

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.
