Imagine the scenario – you have a successful arts centre boastfully set in beautiful grounds but pottering about in the back yard there stands a somewhat redundant building. An old school-cum-prison house-cum funeral home – it has some serious history – but what on earth would you possibly do with it? Cover it in polystyrene, resin and bright white paint? No, probably not.
But then again French artists Christophe Berdaguer and Marie Péjus aren’t exactly ones to do things by the book or indeed like anyone else. Draping the building in exactly that (huge blocks of polystyrene covered with resin and then layered with white paint), to make a luminous white architectural dream of a visitors centre, their Gue(ho)st House is simply breathtaking.
Standing tall next to the gallery, the Gue(ho)st House’s ghostly concept builds upon the rich history of the building combining the ghosts of its past with it’s future as a contemporary art space and looking absolutely fantastic, it goes without saying that when it come to perfecting the art of architecture Christophe and Marie do it with serious innovation, creativity and style!
