Nice but they didn't have to change the original colors, although both versions are good.

there are mountains in the surroundings and a sea.
So it harmonizes better with the colours of clouds and/or blue sky

i also like both versions

Well it's not like they are that different to what we build today, maitaince and some details like stone or wood on the facade are often the main difference.

The last time I was there was in 2009. All these buildings looked very ugly at that time. As you can see, renovation works are not finished in this area yet.

Probably most of the 'point' blocks in London have been renovated (those which haven't been demolished), some more drastically than others. Some examples:

Aragon Tower, Pepys Estate in Deptford, became 'Z building' (private)





Ethelred Estate, Kennington

Weybridge Point, Battersea... can't find any 'before' shots unfortunately, but this always strikes me as being very high quality refurb when I pass it on the train:

That Battersea renewal is one of the few very successful projects of improving the hideous designs of the 60,s and 70,s tower blocks.
The majority, unfortunately, are just cheap and nasty garish paint jobs that cannot in anyway disguise the original banality and ugliness of the structure. Interesting, though the U.K. was never a Communist State, clearly the architects and town planners of the post war decades thought it was!!

Some from Constanta, Romania!











In Olimp, near Constanta:
Before:

After:

Back to Constanta





Constanta still has hard work to do as many are still ugly and worn down. Unfortunately such renovations create so much noise
In constanta they put tiles to cover up the raw concrete, and then cover those with a plaster, then paint the new cladding. I wish the renovations would install matching windows as well
