Another one from Oslo. This building stands in a area dominated by a relatively dense cluster with old wooden buildings (i.e. it's not a suburb). You can take a look at the area in streetview: https://maps.google.no/maps?q=Rodel%...2,123.4,,0,2.2

This building was built between 1986 and 1990 in swiss chalet style, which was really popular in Norway around 1900.

The one in Egypt has that usual postmodernist kitschiness that would make it look bad everywhere expect for where it was built. Out of the desert, it would be horrible, but now it seems to fit the location nicely. If it looked less plaster-y, it would have been excellent.

^ Since this thread is about completely newly built houses in traditional styles, I recommend that you post your photos here or there.

Barkli Residence, Moscow. I'm not sure what style it is trying to imitate, but it won't look modern.

Sort of classical 20s US skyscraper look, combined with Art Deco and Stalinist elements I'd say. Not bad at all, better than "the 8th sister" actually.

Yes, it have been shown. I like it, but I wish they had not used those cheap, reflective windows. It cheapens the whole thing down.

Sorry for repeat
About the windows - I feel the same, but I believe it wasn't architects fault.
Actually, it was the request from city authority (!) First of all, they demanded the building should fit "historical surroundings", but when project was ready, they criticized the author and said "he went too deep in the past and forgot the present time, he should wider use modern materials and technology", so project was a bit changed.
It wasn't the developer who said this - but the body of city authority, who should protect historical heritage. This part of the story still beyond my understanding...

A shame as it is otherwise a very nice building indeed.

Something to think about...

I think the post fits here well. The point is that the traditionally looking appearance of these buildings is new, not genuine. Whether it was created as a result of completely new construction or just reconstruction (redecoration) of the existing building is not so important.

And here is a similar example from St. Petersburg (17, Dobroliubov av.).

^ I disagree. As the thread title reads: New Buildings Built in Traditional Architecture Style


Nothing to argue here, really. Please use the other threads that fit this kind of content better, thanks.

I disagree, these buildings are new. The structure may be old but the actual facade is new building.
