Melted French art house

Very fine new issue of A10, new European architecture. Full of big and smaller bright design ideas. This is from the category small but most remarkable: Gue(ho)st House, Delme, France.

A snowwhite  house, looking like a melted candle, realized in 2012, in the small French town of Delme. The building on the grounds of a synagogue has had quite some transformations over the years. It started out as prison, was turned into a school and ended up as a funeral home. Untill last year. Now it has been transformed into an art centre, by artists Christophe Berdaguer and Marie Préjus, together with CHD Art Production. The building was transformed into a stark white cartoonesk form when its facade was covered with a layer of high density polystyrene, creating a surreal dali-esque image of liquidity in the structure, emphasized by the sharp contrast with the conservative lines of the neighbouring buildings.
