Have you ever wondered what Edward Scissorhands director Tim Burton would look like as a house?
Tim Burton’s creepy and twisted fantasies are beautifully conveyed as a ramshackle shack, perilously supported by stilt-like legs. If you look closely you can see nods to the wonderful Nightmare Before Christmas and Frankenweenie.
David Lynch’s building is a sleek, modernist, dark and foreboding block, with nods to his use of symbolism – and of course, classic red curtains.
Balanced symmetry and timeless sci-fi patterns make up Stanley Kubrick’s house. HAL 9000’s watching red eye from 2001: A Space Odyssey takes centre place, keeping an eye on everything.
Other classic directors turned buildings including Federico Fellini, Charlie Chaplin, Jacques Tati and the Coen Brothers. Directors are the architects of cinema after all.
