Many of the great directors of the 20th and 21st centuries have gained their illustrious reputations due to their development of a unique style. If you're a film buff, you'll always be able to recognize one of Stanley Kubrick's films from the lengthy shots, or a Tim Burton film for that dark yet cute quirkiness, or a Wes Anderson feature for that color palette.

Taking cues from many directors' unique and signature styles, artist Federico Babina has represented each using architecture in his series 'Archidirector.' What would a George Lucas house, or a Coen Brothers house look like? Each piece holds little nods to their filmographies, can you spot all of them? Take a look at some of these awesome representations below that have gathered tidbits and Easter eggs from these directors' greatest films!

Stanley Kubrick

I guess that Hal 9000 in the middle is hard to miss!

Jim Jarmusch

I'm sure Tom Waits is one of those guys hanging out under the awning.

Tim Burton

I think I can see Jack Skellington cozying up to Sally by the farthest tree to the right.

George Lucas

R2D2's poking his head out of the top. Classic R2!

Ridley Scott

Anyone see the Alien anywhere? In any case, I'm looking forward to checking out The Martian in October.

Wes Anderson

Reminds me a lot of the boat in The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.

David Lynch

Twin Peaks curtains! I cannot wait for the new season to come out.

Coen Brothers

I see those bowling pins...but where's the Dude?

This is just a sampling of Babina's work, but there are many more houses featuring directors such as Hitchcock, von Trier, Antonioni, Kusturica, Bergman, Tarkovsky, Lang, and many more.

To see the rest of the collection, take a look at his website under the series 'Archidirector.'
