A renovated block (although I think it's from the 30s and not a true commieblock. Still nice to include)

Adding glarishly coloured plastic to otherwise bland buildings is going to go down as the most obvious "what the **** were they thinking?" design decision of todays architecture.

Here's what they looked like before renovation.





And during refurbishment


All the gray, slightly brown concrete is the original cladding, showing what they looked like in the 60s & 70s

I particularly like the black window frames and the lack of rust/clutter on the horizontal bars. Makes it look much fresher.

In my opinion, you cannot go wrong with black window frames on modern buildings. It looks so elegant. White frames look a bit clunky.

Not a commiebock, but a beautifully renovated modernist factory-looking building: (Lodz)
