This is how postmodernist buildings should be built. None of that tacky, hideous stuff built in the mid 90s.

Yeah, NYC

I usually call any new building with traces of old styles 'postmodernist' because I don't know all the names of building styles. I only know a few, like art deco, gothic and art nouveau, so I'm never sure.

I like the facade, but I am not too crazy about the penthouse floor with the massive chimneys.

Here's a remodel of an old American Legions Hall into a Walgreens Pharmacy with a new classical facade that I worked on. It is still under construction, and there are details that still need to be installed, such as the cornice.

Very awesome job! Where in NOLA is that? Looks like the Bywater. The original building looked like crap and didnt at all fit in. I have to say that this is one of the best reconstructions of an old style Ive seen. Its spot on, congrats. Also, is that what the original building looked like? Looks like someone came along in the 70s and destroyed it like they destroyed most historic buildings during that time.

Looks far older than 70s... The brickwork looks '40s at least...

The original building was probably built in the late 40s to early 50s basing it off the brickwork and the cinderblock siding. But, it looks like it had storefront windows at one point which were later bricked in. And that horrid looking thing over the door is very brutalistic, so it was probably altered in the late 70s to 80s.
