The top image was how I initially saw this piece to be, including all 4 flats in a block. After some thought it was agreed that this wouldn’t do as a personal piece. I flipped the frame 90 degrees, selected the single flat and was thus able to enlarge it, creating greater clarity and detail.
Normally I select certain protruding elements on the building, cut out and raise them. But in this case the building on both sides is completely flat, aside from a real and faux balcony.
The real balcony, on the front of the building overlooks a beautifully spacious and green courtyard.
The faux balcony on the rear side protrudes slightly. Though as these pictures were designed to be placed next to each other, it only felt natural to bring this balcony forward as well.
