Murder She Wrote…?

A raw concrete house in Alicante by Spanish studio Langarita-Navarro Arquitectos becomes the scene for a string of mysterious murders in this series of images that take on a macabre playfulness to the usual, ‘straight-faced’ architectural shots most architectural firms commission.

So a house is the perfect place for creating a fantasy.

So there you have it!
