The sculptural Gue(ho)st House building is situated adjacent to the Delme Contemporary Art Center, which is housed in a former Synagogue located in a small town in the far northeastern corner of France. The public art commission was financed by the Ministry of Culture and Communication and a host of local public and private supporters to create a space that the entire community can enjoy.

The funeral parlor was transformed into a new reception area where school groups and other visitors will gather for educational programs. There is also a gallery and an inspiring studio space upstairs that will be made available to the occasional visiting artist. In a press release, the artists said of their latest project: “As the spatial projection of a collective psyche, the house becomes not only a place of emotions, perceptions and memories, but also a great mediation tool for the art centre.”

    that’s very cool … and well insulated sans doute … but shame about the polystyrene … I would much prefer to see it rendered with chaux + chanvre, to similar effect ………

    Gyppers gyppers where you get them peepers, jolly gyppers where you get them eyes. Where you get them eyes. Seriously, who would really live in a ‘fun house’? It does remind me of a dwelling constructed by the Pueblo Indians, because it the basic concept would be adoptable to the desert environment.
