It seems like they also added this pedestrian crossings in the last moment, notice how this decorative bushes are placed and the lack of proper sidewalk. Very strange design.

So tasteful! I love that the design enhances the buildings rather than overwhelm and/or "reinvent" them as some renovations tend to do.

I see Sofia is suffering from the "Krakow Syndrome" of giant, overpowering upper storeys

I disagree. It's made to look like it's an obvious modern addition, and by that acknowledging the original good design, but still to fit in harmoniously (window shape and placement).

In East Europe people just add whatever crap they want to their building, thinking that makes them a "free country" when in reality all the civilized countries have laws that forbid that. I think they just reconstructed their roof and added a bit of space, they probably didn't intend for it to be an obvious modern extension.

Before was an ordinary outdated building. Now it's modern with green undulating roof.
