Party Scenes Give Apartment Listing A More Lived-In Feel [Pics]
Dank Architects recreated before and after scenes of a raging party to make one of their minimalist apartments look more personable in photos.
When the architects from French studio Dank Architectes redesigned a residential garden apartment in Lyon, they wanted to take some architectural photos to show off the work they had done to transform the traditional apartment into a loft space. Rather than take ordinary photos of a clean, staged house, the architects decided to make the apartment look as if it had just hosted a big party.
Featured on their portfolio website, the photos of the house show champagne bottles and passed out people. Dank architect Steven Guigoz told Dezeen:
Our idea was to try to make the architectural photos more alive by making the place look a little messier, contrasting with the minimalist aspects of the architecture we designed.
Houses are meant to be lived in, and Dankâ€™s approach shows that even the most minimalist design can become homey when injected with some humour.
