The British artist Grayson Perry has introduced the unusual project named A House for Essex. He received an order from Living Architecture and created this colorful house, intended to raise the architectural awareness among British people and make them value interesting projects all over the country. Implementation of that idea became possible thanks to architects of FAT (Fashion Architecture Taste) studio.
The house`s creation was inspired by local traditions, images of roadside chapels, eccentric buildings and fairy-tales. The house is small, beautiful and mysterious. It has found its place among fields and trees and is intended for rent. It is possible to accommodate here up to four people. The building contains two bedrooms, two-level living room and a small kitchen. A range of Grayson Perry`s pieces of art are inbuilt into the residence`s decor, including marvelous tapestries, pots, wood-made decorative items and mosaic floors. The first renters appraised the project in June. Considering big amount of participants the organizers chose the first dwellers via lots.
