This will be dependant on its material quality and how the details are executed. Hough I'm worried the ceiling heights will make proportions a bit off.

Still, great to see that New Classical architecture makes its way in the Paris metro, keeping up its distinct, globally unique style and classy charme! They can still improve in all directions.

Not a surprise to see this in Plessis-Robinson, it's in continuity with its huge plan to transform the city with the neo-traditional architecture.

Why do they have to ruin the nice facade details with bad building proportions?

Pal. It's the main difference between classical & post-classical architectural languages: There's a set of rules for classical. If you don't understand them, don't follow them or are unable to evolutionise them (like early modern - Art Deco, Nouveau etc.) - you're doomed to fail. You'll produce kitsch most likely.

Classical architecture provides the security fence for architects that later styles lack.
It secures that even the least talented architect doesn't fall down the abyss, that he can create something that looks somewhat alright, if he follows the distinct classical rules, proportions (thus pretty much any classical building is at least okay, there's hardly 'plain ugly' buildings). He'll only fail if he leaves that path. In contrast to many modernist architects who fail all the time, since there's hardly common ground for good designs. Both has up- and downsides. Both classical and 'post-classical' can create gorgeous designs - but sadly it's much more likely to create fugly designs with modernism as it is with faithful classical (almost impossible).

Ergo:
It's not a challenge to please the friends of classical architecture - just follow the darned rules, damnit!

@erbse
I agree about the rules to follow for classical architecture. So if these rules cannot comply with today real estate market, what to do ? I would not imagine today any contractor willing to make a large facade limestone building with high ceilings and large windows, or maybe for few billionaires... Materials used in the past are no longer used anywhere in the world. Whatever the architect is doing will be tacky anyway compared to originals. What i usually see are replicates with a steel structure somtimes not too bad from the outside. From the inside, sure the charm and quality is not the same than in old buildings. Also, art nouveau is real art, so is art deco in a way, it's real artist work to design. With today reality, whether we create poor replicates of pre war buildings, best we can...(few only can afford to live with high ceilings today and 1m large limestone facade or pieces of fine sculpture up their front door), or we reinvent our homes with more reasonable standards - trying to push the best we can quality, design and quality of life considering we are millions of inhabitants in today big cities. We can't reinvent anything if we're always looking back to someting we would not be able to redo
