I think that the original door was more in character than the flashy new one.

I had edited this photo of Quilmes with Photoshop in 2012, giving to the building a similar style to the Edificio España of Madrid.

However, the building was repainted in 2014, as is usually done with all buildings in this city (for the fourth time since its construction, if I'm not mistaken. At first, the stripes were pink, then green. Later light blue, and now burgundy.):




PS: The kiosco (I don't know the English word for this) on the corner mutated from Pepsi to Coca-Cola .

It's hard to renovate or update brutalism without changing the look.

Not necessarily. Look at the Yale Art and Architecture Building.

Before:


After:


The problem is updating ones that were built cheaply, or left to be vandalized with careless window replacements/balcony enclosures.
