If we could create a virtual audience-wave of support for this surfboard visor and white-capped surf window-box, we should. There’s nothing like a little creativity to animate an elevation (and distract from various utilities). This improvised composition cleverly suggests a window bay – an anthropomorphic one at that. You can’t help but smile back at the surfboard brow, casement-window eyes, exhaust-vent nose and choppy, window-box mouth. Humor in design, as elsewhere, is always a welcome asset.
