Lund

 

A rather odd structure in Lund, Sweden - haven't discovered what it was used for, looks like some kind of gatehouse, perhaps?  I have discovered that it is the Dekanhuset - the Dean's house, dating from the 15th century, and now part of Lund's open air museum.

I couldn't guess... but I love the combination of stone and brick... How'd they get it to all work out?!

I like the brick-stone mixture too...
Tom Wilson: Certainly interesting! I have discovered that it is the Dekanhuset - the Dean's house, dating from the 15th century, and now part of Lund's open air museum.

Whatever it is, Tom, it is an attractive structure.

i have a feeling there are not enough windows for the interior of this structure but the white cement and the dark blocks work effectively, Tom.

A prison?

A gatehouse or perhaps a store? It looks unlike a place for habitation with those small windows
Tom Wilson: It was in fact a house smile I have discovered that it is the Dekanhuset - the Dean's house, dating from the 15th century, and now part of Lund's open air museum.
Not sure I'd want to be inside this basically windowless structure, Tom!

Certainly doesn't look like a house.

A slightly Scottish look to this building Tom.
Tom Wilson: Mmm - I see what you mean, Chad.
What an attractive building with it's strange aggregate to cover the walls.
Tom Wilson: It is an unusual mixture, isn't it?
I particularly like the randow scattering of non-uniform shaped boulders in the walls.
Tom Wilson: It's certainly different!

It does look rather odd.. tall but quite narrow. I assume that the Dean liked climbing stairs.
