My request wasn't directed at you specifically, but to contributors in general.

And I agree, not any single paint job requires another post here.
More thorough building makeovers, area revitalisations and before/after comparisons in apt quality photos are what most people are coming here for, I'd guess. It's a great thread, just felt like saying that maybe a second thought should be given to what's post-worthy.

Revitalization is ok I would say. What is beautiful is this huge change / transforamtion, whatever you call it. Talking about Pabianice ofc.

Awesome!

I wonder why they chose to put the entrance there.. looks strange and asymmetric.

Might have been two buildings historically? Anyway, some asymmetry is often typical for classical proportions.

Great job Breslau!

Anyway, as I don't want to come into conflict, I will focus in 'better' cases. As for the photos, whenever I can, I post good quality. Only when I can't find good images, I have to turn to low quality photos or Street View.

PS: And I don't think that the last one or the bridge are bad projects. Here are posts of common buildings which are just a simple paint job and nobody said anything about it.
I don't think you should be discouraged from what Erbse is saying. He is obviously trying to uphold a certain standard for the thread but your photos are relevant in that they do represent revitalization even though some are very simple. I find it's interesting to see that Argentina is restoring more of it's heritage these days as too much as been lost in the past but there is still the greatest concentration of fine late 19th/early 20th c. buildings there than in any other South American country.

The architecture in Argentina never fails to amaze me.

Elaborate details on that last one!
But proportions seem a bit off for an actual historicist building. The lower columns are too low imho, while the first floor seems too heavy and overly ornate, and it seems to lack a cupola or something. Not a bad building, but it doesn't really work for me.
