Girard Brasserie

Photographic Wallpaper by Julia Blaukopf in collaboration with Joshua Otto of Otto Architects LLC.

Girard Brasserie hoped for a truly unique bathroom in their new ‘no tipping’ brasserie in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia.

Julia photographed from the roof of the restaurant. The final image is a black and white interpretation of the surrounding cityscape. The photograph wraps around the bathroom walls, including the door. A mirror hangs above the sink and toilet, reflecting the entire scene.

Michael Klein highlighted Julia’s work in Philly.com

“…one of the coolest features is in the restroom. The men had photographer Julia Blaukopf go to the roof and take a panoramic photo of the immediate area. That’s Girard Avenue wrapping around the walls.”
