Parquet Patterned Pool and Spa in Southern Sweden

From the architects Claesson Koivisto Rune:

A spa with two pools has been completed adjacent to a 1796 mansion in south Sweden. The spa has one indoor pool for wintertime and one outdoor for summer. The outdoor pool sits on a podium, which levels the slope on which the mansion sits. It thus creates a platform from which you have an elevated view over the estate towards the back. Yet, it sits discrete as seen from the approach to the main entrance.

Lending inspiration from the Gustavian (Neoclassical) mansion in general and parquet floor patterns from the time in particular, the concept is built on the chevron (French parquet). The oversized (in comparison with normal parquets) tiles are white which allows them to be coloured turquoise by the depth of the water. Each step down into the pool thus is a deeper hue of turquoise. The water itself is not treated as a transparent ”nothing” but as a visible element and one of the materials on the palette. A material with the added function of beautifully lifting the tile pattern from the bottom of the pool to the surface, refracted and distorted by ripples.

So stupid question, with McCall not being the one who killed the chemist and stiles possibly make the gun backfire, why was there a flash of light? Was that the backfire?

This is not a stupid question at all :) The gun was fired, the chemist probably pulled the trigger, but the bullet never entered Stiles’ head. I’m not sure we can say it backfired exactly. Everything that happens indicates that Stiles should have been hit by the bullet -  but instead it ended up lodged in the forehead of his assailant. So clearly some supernatural mojo at play here, coming from stiles.

For those wondering what this is all about i’m just gonna put in some links here first:

I have picked apart the guns but i haven’t really gone into detail about the flash of light before, so i’m going to take the opportunity to do that now.

I have to credit summerchild-madeofstone for the following information - in fact i copied it straight from her blog - here’s the link.  thank you so much for adding to my meta :)

You can clearly see the gun recoil while simultaneously emitting a flash of light the completely lights up STILES’ face. According to wikipedia: (though if someone can find a more credible source that would be great!) 

muzzle flash is the visible light of a muzzle blast, which expels high temperature, high pressure gases from the muzzle of a firearm

Muzzle flash is what happens when a gun is fired. 

If the shot came from behind them, it’s likely we wouldn’t see it at all given the camera angles. 

So, if we combine the new evidence of:

  • a muzzle flash emitting from The Chemists gun
  • the kickback action of the gun

with the old evidence of:

  • the fact that The Chemist is knocked back by the shot
  • the wound on his forehead is a small ENTRY wound with a dark stippling pattern and not an EXIT wound which would be blown out
  • the wound on his forehead is in the exact same place he was pressing the gun to Stiles forehead

The Chemist absolutely, 100% fired his gun, point blank, at Stiles forehead… and shot himself.

I’ve also theorized later that this extreme reaction was because Stiles’ Third eye was threatened. Notice how the gun is pointed straight at the place such a thing would be - ref the creepy Valack Deaton visited at Eichen House. Read about that here.
