Wall of...Frames?


I recently wrote a post about a wall of mirrors...well, how about a wall of frames? Gilded window frames, that is! An architect in Sweden is building a housing project with windows of gilded window frames. This project consists of 2 houses, both 6 stories wide, with 14 apartments (9 of them duplex apartments), glossy white enameled facade panels, with cast aluminium window frames that are gold leaf painted. This reminds me a lot of something Philippe Starck would have done - mixing modern with rococo, neo-classicism, etc.
