Commercial Style Buildings

A tread dedicated to buildings from the turn of the century that used steel-frame construction and facades consisting of large, open glass areas. The Chicago school buildings are typical examples of this building type.



Some links with definitions on what commercial style really is:

One from Oslo, Norway: The Backer building. Built in 1894-5 after a design by the Norwegian architect Herman Major Backer in a design inspired by contemporary American designs. The pictures was taken by myself a couple of years ago.







And one picture from an external source:

The Bayard-Condict Building in New York city. Built between 1897 and 1899 after a design by the world-renowned Louis Sullivan. The building is absolutely gorgeous.

I always found the detailing on Sullivan's buildings too tiny compared to the rest of the building.

The buidings in Chicago are great. I would have never guessed the first one was from 1894.

Would this qualify?


Wikipedia
It's the Myrstedt & Stern house on Kungsgatan, Stockholm. Maybe not the most exciting building though.
