    Ascension in art

    Ascension is a Christian holiday celebrated forty days after Easter (counting Easter Sunday). That’s why she always falls on a Thursday, usually in May. In the tradition and the Christian faith, it marks the elevation to heaven of Jesus of Nazareth after his resurrection and the end of his earthly presence.

    A bunker rehabilitated in dwelling

    On the eve of the commemoration of May 8, 1945, I wished to present you an astonishing construction, built on a former bunker of the second world war. With 9 high floors, after the second world war, half a century later, this bunker was added a new structure. Rehabilitated as a home by Amort Architektur, the construction served as a basis for the creation of an extraordinary residential design.

The house is contemporary, placed on an older structure, worn by…
