bottle walls

Yep, those are walls made of bottles. And yep, it’s a former beer factory (Blatz Brewery to be exact). And it’s in Milwaukee. From my quick scan of the archdaily post, it’s now a multi-purpose building.

You can easily argue that bottle walls are trite, but given the context of it being a former beer factory in Milwaukee, I think it works. And they’re so glowy and warm. Ahhh. The Eames chairs and concrete walls are a nice touch. The weird vinyl floor and boring wall lamp fixtures are not.

I’d like to see what these beer walls look like in person. I bet they don’t look as fantastic as they do in this photo.

The vinyl floors would be good for shuffleboard. Oh wait. What do you play shuffleboard on? What was Hope Lutheran Church’s basement floors made out of? Isn’t that cool that Hope Lutheran Church would make their basement floors to have a shuffleboards on them? I want to see photos of them playing shuffleboard back in the day. I don’t recall them doing that in the 80s. (the 1980s)

I love the inclusion of the Eames LCWs!
