When Luis Diaz Diaz came to photograph Casa Baladrar, a holiday home in Benissa, Spain for architects Langarita-Navarro Arquitectos he decided to add mystery to the home by making it the scene of a few crimes.

In one photograph, you see a man hanging ominously outside of a window, another with a woman’s legs from behind a sofa and in another, perhaps most disturbingly, a woman lying face down in the pool. The photographer told Dezeen:

Every time I take pictures of houses I think about all of the things that could happen inside. Many things happen in the life of a house, sometimes good sometimes bad; it can be robbed, or there could be a big party. So a house is the perfect place for creating a fantasy. I wanted to create a contrast between the clarity of the architectural lines of the house and these kind of weird event.

There seems to be a trend lately of architects staging homes to look slightly more lived in, like the apartment in Lyon, France set to look like a party had just happened. if purchased. The trend creates a “lived-in” feel to homes, instead of the pristine fantasy that most real estate agents want to portray.
