Cuckoo Blocks by Guido Zimmermann

“Cuckoo Blocks” are Zimmermann’s answer to the traditional cuckoo clocks from the Black Forest in Germany. They present a contemporary view of urban living and compelling architecture. The hull is new, but the soul, a clockwork with a cuckoo, is still an old one.

Two aspects have a special significance here: buildings with a striking history and architectural value, as well as living in social flashpoints. Both are connected to the blocky, massive concrete construction.

Dear friends,

This is a photo I recently took in Lisbon, Portugal - the city where I just moved to. If you happen to live here I would be happy to meet you, so all messages are welcome!

In the meantime you can follow my journey through architecture and interior design, coffee, sunlight, good food and beautiful plants. Find me on Instagram -> https://www.instagram.com/elenaskoycheva/  ♡  ♡  ♡

I never own this one, so I modeled by looking to the photos I found over the net.

Hope you like it.”
