This is very interesting, it's one of those buildings that make the transition to from Art Nouveau / revival styles to Art Deco. Thank you for all the stuff you post around here btw.

Like Tolbert I don't see baroque in there but rather art deco, Jugendstil and some neo romanesque influences. But baroque...?
I believe Austrått manor is the best example in Norway, though I think its mainly in Sweden you'll find it more widespread. Im not that familiar with their buildings.

I spent the last week in Västerås, Sweden visiting my girlfriends family. Although I think Västerås mostly come across as a patch-work with not much interesting to see and it seemingly seems to be run by someone with a hatred for urban cities judging by the amount of big box stores that are located in its outskirts, there is at least one building in the city that I find very fascinating and attractive. And since it was built in Nordic National Romantic style then I thought I would make the effort to present it here too.

So here it is: Ottarkontoret in Västerås, Sweden. The building is sometimes referred to as Asea-tornet too (the Asea tower). It was built between 1916 and 1919 with Erik Hahr as the architect. Hahr was the city architect in Västerås between 1909 and 1935. It was built as the head office for ASEA who later merged with Swiss Brown, Boveri & Cie to form ABB, whom the building now functions as the Swedish headquarter of. Ottarkontoret is built right next to Västerås central bus terminal and train station, and both function as a gate to and a monument of the great industrial past of the city.

The office of ABB in Sweden. It's located in Västerås (pronounced like GoT's Westeros), just 1 hour to the West of Stockholm. My friend used to work in this office so I paid him a visit. #europe #nordic #scandinavia #sweden #sverige #västmanland #västerås by Abraham Setiawan, on Flickr

Såheim hydroelectric power station in Rjukan, Norway. It was constructed in 1914-1915 by Norsk Hydro with Thorvald Astrup and Olaf Nordhagen as the architects. The Rjukan Line had to be tunneled underneath the building to make space for it. This, along with the rest of the Rjukan industrial settlement and the other nearby power station, have been become UNESCO site and I think that's actually the first Nordic Neo-baroque/National Romantic style buildings to become world heritage sites.

I have to first apologize for how Norwegian-dominated this thread have become, but I frankly are not that familiar with many examples of this style in the rest of the Nordics and I have not that much searching either ... So here comes another one.

Villa Alvim in Oslo, Norway. It was built in 1915 with brothers Carl Berner and Jørgen Berner.
