The Spanish versions seem to have balconies which the French seem to have much less. The balcony originally came for Lombardy if I'm not mistaken.

About balconies, in the Second Empire style there is some rules like: no balcony at the first and last floors etc etc

About French Architecture there is also french windows, rococo style, French provincial style, French "Louis XIII" style (stone & brick mix), French Renaissance (which is unique because this is a mix with Medieval/gothic architecture like Chambord Castle).......
All these French versions or styles have had influence in many countries in the world.

Louis XIII



Château de Chambord

Buildings with "no roof" I mean when it's hidden, came from italian renaissance.
This style begun in Italy but was used in the french neoclassicism (like in Versailles). The French version (thanks to Versailles) had influenced many architectures in Europe and in the World and has influenced also the Beaux Arts style (included the First building in Shanghai).

Thanks for sharing, I already been to Buenos Aires but I was quite young !

I need to go there again because this city is something like a small or big Paris (I don't know, maybe a big Paris because of the size of the buildings) !!

In Amsterdam we have very few. One is very prominent and looks out of place on the Damrak. And the Bijenkorf as well.

Indeed, this is stunning, when we see some pictures of Buenos Aires streets, we could easily think those are Parisian streets with their "Haussmann" buildings !

On this one, for example :

Buenos Aires
Paris

It makes sense not to have balconies on the first and last levels. They really add to the architecture. I'm a fan of bigger, more functional balconies but the smaller ones are aesthetically pleasing.
