Is your home of architectual interest or merit

Are you living in a building that has an architectual importance?



Maybe your house has been designed by a famous architect, uses inventive materials, is situated in a unusual place, has been strongly styled in a particular architectual style, is a listed building or something similar?


If so, post up some info and photos too if you would like.


And interesting history would count too.

It's an antique I think - it's over 100 years old.

Why yes, yes I do.



Notice the great details in the windows and beauty of the roofing.

My condo building was constructed by the prolific Chicago Apartments architect Robert DeGolyer in 1911. It is actually a midrise complex of 3 attached buildings built in a refined Palladian style.

The building and floorplans were included in a recent book on historic Chicago Apartment buildings:
