This summer George King Architects will head to Russia to install our latest project, a freestanding residential unit called The Camera House. Built to celebrate the opening of the Yarky art hostel in St Petersburg, components for the temporary module are currently being pre-fabricated off-site and will be installed at the hostel week beginning July 5th.
The external form of The Camera House is inspired by the old bellows camera, while the inside will feature a camera obscura display. The Camera House was one of five winning designs chosen from an international competition organised by the hostel and Project Baltia Magazine.
GKA’s House of Mirrors featured as part of the 2015 Sculpture by the Sea exhibition on Cottesloe Beach in Western Australia. In the video below George King talks through the design and construction process.
