Well, that Düsseldorf one is a difficult case.

Even for me, the 19th century building looks a bit clumsy. The new one definitely has more class and is very elegant. One of the best townhouse examples we've seen posted at this thread. I don't know what was going on with the older building, maybe it was demolished by another owner. But of course I'd rather see a much uglier building replaced by a beautiful new classical townhouse.

The proportions were better before though (ceiling height). The old one also looked more unique / less generic. Also there are at least 80% ugly post-war buildings in Düsseldorf, so why?

Yeah, I thought so too. I'm for a broad brush heritage-protection law that protects all buildings pre 1910 or so, no buts. It's absolutely unecessary to demolish a pre-war building in any German city. There's tons upon tons of 50s/60s/70s trash you can tear down all you want instead.

Yeah, a "protect everything before 1914/45" legislation definitely would make sense.
It helped a lot to restore the glory of Leipzig, as this city decided to protect all its pre-war buildings. That way a lot was saved and many many facades got reconstructed.

The old building should have been preserved. It was quite beautiful and just the balcony had been post-war mutilated by this ugly slate cladding. The new building is in my opinion not one of the better works of neotraditional architecture in Germany. There are several incoherencies to classical order. :/

Not sure what you mean by Moorish, but the area is modelled after Venice with the canals and everything.
