Well you can buy mansion/home plans and blueprints at small rates here:
http://www.archivaldesigns.com/store...-house-plans-0

This can also be sorted by styles etc.: http://www.homeplans.com/mansion-home-plans

A similar one: http://www.dreamhomesource.com/house.../mansions.html
Plus you can consult the architects of the plans for free, for what I understood.

Though of course using an original 19th century plan has a lot of appeal.
I'd love to do that one day. Might need some changes due to safety/energy restrictions and for modern comfort, though.

Do you know where I can source some of these designs?

http://www.amazon.com/Sears-Roebuck-...ck+house+plans

The Sears & Roebuck plans can be gotten from Amazon, but you will still need someone to do the drafting and to develop the individual site plan. Also, the plans were designed for living in the early twentieth century, and some things may not appeal to buyers today. For example, the kitchens nowadays are open to the living rooms, whereas in the past they were closed off. Some of these houses are so small that the master bedroom shares a bath with the other bedrooms. That's something that would not be very appealing to today's buyers.

I've looked @ and used designs from Bicknell's Victorian Homes before.

For French Beaux Arts there is this book that I've found. You can download a PDF version of it.

I actually had checked it out from the library (a couple of months ago), and used it often for this (although the buildings in the book were usually MUCH smaller).

Looks way better than your penn station, better use of details and better proportions. I like it. You might try to give it some colour. would help to differ between glass and walls

1458 Marfaa, Beirut, Robert Adam Architecture, 2009

This is among the most reverent and compelling examples of New Classical Architecture I recently came across:

Beirut, Lebanon: 1458 Marfaa. Completed in 2009.
Designed by Robert Adam at ADAM Architecture.
Marking an entrance situation into old Beirut.







Lantern that develops Middle Eastern classicism



Interesting approach here.



Source of all: http://architecturelab.net/2010/03/b...rk-for-beirut/


Yes, it's on the verge of postmodernism, but frankly, such buildings defy any such classification imho. It's New Classical, it's innovative, it's humble, timeless, decent and surprising at the same time. I love it.

It's featured in Adam's book as well, a good read:

Robert Adam of ADAM Architecture: The Search for a Modern Classicism (New Classicists)
