Stockholm architects Wilhelmson Arkitekter have designed a housing project with windows that look like gilded picture frames. Update: this project is included in Dezeen Book of Ideas, which is on sale now for £12.
Designed by professor Anders Wilhelmson, the project is to be built overlooking the sea in Helsingborg, Sweden.
Pictures are by Peter Thuvander and Danyal Taylan.
