Scout Shot of the Day: Display Cases

While traveling over the kids February break, we stayed at the Auberge Saint-Antione in Quebec City.  Throughout the hotel, there are these beautiful glass display cases containing artifacts that were found when excavating to build the modern portion of the hotel.

The display cases were detailed such that they are recessed into the thick plaster walls and then the frameless glass display boxes pop out and are proud of the wall surface leaving a deep reveal of stainless steel between the glass and plaster.

 Display cases at elevators

The display cases at the elevators were detailed similarly as above, but in a larger, square format and they contained colored LED lights that slowly changed colors throughout the day.

Finally, here is the design of the room numbers for the hotel rooms.  Each room number was presented as a display case for a single artifact and the room was named after the artifact.  Very nice.
