Unfortunately they were both remodeled early in the 20th century to fit better with the neocolonial style of the plaza they are in...

Art Nouveau/Jugenstil in New Orleans

H. Jordan MacKenzie was an architect who came to New Orleans from California. He practiced in New Orleans between 1901 and 1917 and then moved to Houston where he worked in the office of Afred C. Finn. H. Jordan MacKenzie's work is influenced by the Vienna Secessionist Movement and the work of Josef Maria Olbriche.

This house is the Centanni House completed in 1917 on Canal Street in New Orleans. Of interest are the massive stone Doric-esque columns that appear be deformed under the load of the roof as if they were made out of putty, the coffered barrel vaulted ceiling over the porch, and the deep overhangs supported on Arts and Crafts styled brackets.

They made mistake. I don't see Art nouveau elements. All of this is historic.

It's not an Art Nouveau, its eclectic buliding combining german renaissance and classical architecture.

You're right, but if you look closely on the collums and the planters right by side you'll recognise Jugendstil elements.

There's more about this house at the following link, including a close up photo of the columns:

http://www.brigittefredy.com/tours/centanni/centannimn.htm

I should go take a close up picture of the columns and planters, becasue they are the most "Jugendstil" of the whole architectural composition.

H. Jordan MacKenzie House

This is the house that architect H. Jordan Mckenzie built for himself including an historic photo copied from the Preservation Resource Center's publication Preservation in Print. It is influenced by the work of Josef Maria Olbrich.

Amazing style, impressively creative and varied. In my city, Montevideo, there are a few examples of the many branches of the style.

I'll start with one of my favourite ones, built in 1916 to house a famous optician's, Pablo Ferrando. Now, the first floors are occupied by a bookshop. The dome, which had been taken out during the seventies, was rebuilt a few years ago.

Moving on to a drastically different style, this pavilions, designed by the Catalan architect Cayetano Buigas i Monravß, were built between 1911 and 1913 and denote a strong influence of Modernisme.

Also designed in a Catalan Modernist style is the residence of former president Claudio williman.

Brasil school.


And IAVA high school (where I studied )




With a style closer to the Jugendstil, but a bit more conservative, Introzzi was one of the most important department stores of the city.



And finally, Casa Corralejo, a building facing the main square of the city, which also used to be a department store, but was unfortunately remodelled in 1936 to house a bank.

Do you have a picture of how the last building looks today? Looks stunning on the old pictures, but was everything there lost in the "remodeling"?

Indeed, today it looks unrecognisable. The fašade was reformulated in a rationalistic style. It was quite innovative at the time, albeit not nearly as interesting as the original fašade. Here is a picture showing how it looks after the remodelling.
