BERCAW RESIDENCE

LA QUINTA, CA













I believe this is a very good example of how traditional forms and elements can be used in contemporary designs with elegance. The only thing bugging me is those railings on the patio but other than that it seems to be a very good design in my opinion.

I actually quite like that example. It incorporates many traditional elements and also has this traditional 'atmosphere' about it, however it can't be confused with an actual old building. Some people dislike building buildings that look like reincarnations of past times and instead demand a new architectural style on the basis of older ones. I don't see why such a new style couldn't be something like the above example.

Those buildings are nice, there is no doubt about it. I also like some of them.

But this thread is about buildings designed and/or built in a "new classical" or "neo-classical" trend or stream of a modern architecture. "Higher" and "more sophisticated" form of those McDonald's mansions.
For me it is a modern architecture with roots to old tradition (not only in architecture but also in urban planning and gardening). Some days ago Hed_Kandi tried to find a proper definition for that trend: for me it is rather what Germans may call "neu historismus" as we have new forms in historical designs and patterns and gosh...they are beautiful!!

^ That's not new, just refurbished. The building is from 1906.

Thanks! The architect has zero information on his site.

Was that a full account used only for Architecture? If so, that's the reason. You should have made a fan page, not a personal profile.

But actually Hed Kandi also started a facebook fan site?!

My suggestion is to add moderators there who can also contribute or continue the accounts in case you haven't got enough time.
