A window – that which you can look out of, and that which you can look into. Two sides of the same thing, transparent and oft-times mirroring our curiosity of what’s on the other side. Wishing and wondering about a different life maybe? Curious to see how someone else lives?
The Beach Lodge in Swakopmund in Namibia is built to resemble a ship, wrecked on the narrow strip of beach, in between the Atlantic ocean and the Namib desert. The windows are large and shaped like portholes. The view is fabulous. While I was there I did not close the curtains even once, and I stared at the ocean for many hours. Very soulful.
