Signal Box, Shoreditch London

Here's an interesting project by OSA in London, who illegally dressed up an old train signal box like a quaint little cottage on stilts. It is ironic in the slummy urban surroundings. The artist said:
"This house looked like a small and forlorn version of stereotypical and slightly ‘twee’ cottage. Although it was old and weathered these idyllic associations made it appear out of place in its rough urban environs like a strange ‘Building-Alien’.

We immediately thought that this structure needed a treat and set about refurbishing the house in a way that aimed to express the idealised vision of a dream property. We called it ‘Intact’."
