Whimsical windows, Delirious doors 53


Auckland where they build with volcanic rock - because it is built on volcanos


Cuba Street, Wellington.

I like that little window.

Wow! I've never ever seen a building made of volcanic rock, that is *really* cool!
And the dichotomy between these two photos is very entertaining :)
Great post!

The bottom building looks so shiny clean compared to the volcanic rock!
The top window is cute, too.

The volcanic rock looks like pumice that would crumble easily. Yet it seems like a very old building so it must be a sturdy rock. It's not a very attractive building material!

The volcanic rock is a neat building medium - much more stylish and rustic than concrete...the Palace in Wellington is beautiful, the brilliant white facade and red window frames have an almost art-deco elegance. It is a great building that stands the test of time...

The Auckland window is especially attractive I think. And so is the stone wall made of volcanic rock.
