Villa Lusthusporten, Stockholm

Another baroque revival/jugend fusion much like the Skånebanken and Svenska kreditaktiebolaget buildings I posted earlier. The building was originally built in 1873 and rebuilt in the early 1900s after designs by architect Carl Möller.

The Anton Dubovik mansion is very rustic and eclectic, but I shall take a look how it looks nowadays, as well as the Rasos district you are mentioning.

Okkie #Wonderful pictures of different Dutch Art Nouveau architecture. These examples are more elaborate ones; usually Dutch Art Nouveau is more restraint, and is not always being recognized as Art Nouveau. In your city of Utrecht there used to be another highlight: the main building of Life Insurance Company 'De Utrecht' designed by architect Jan Verheul. Although the architect of the new Hoog Catherijne Center took the preservation of this building into account, it was totally unnecessary demolished in 1974. And in 1975 the 'Year of Art Nouveau' was organised...

By the way, next year there is a good chance that a small exhibition of Dutch Art Nouveau will be organised in the Riga Art Nouveau Museum, with pictures like these ones.
yea, apperently, most important parts of the de Utecht building are still instorage somehwere. some were build into the music centre, but thats been demolisched as well and replaced right now.
every once in a while theres new plans to rebuild it somewhere else. but theres never money for it... it became a symbol for the destruction of that part of the city, replaced by an ugly huge shopping centre.

and yea, i posted some exampled of dutch art nouveau that have recognisable elements.i guess its the dutch nature to not go overboard with all the fancy stuff. :p

Maybe a bit on the simple side, but I like the eight floor, slender facade towards the water.

The bottom floor hosted the, among artists, popular café Els Quatre Gats, which was founded by the four artists Pere Romeu, Santiago Rusiñol, Ramon Casas, and Miguel Utrillo. One of the more notable patrons of the café was Picasso.

I don't underständ why you accuse some of those buildings to be eclectic and not art nouveau. Art Nouveau and Art Déco are eclectic styles. Eclectism does not only mean to copy styles out of the past. It means also to use historical compositions in a new interpretation. That's what happened in art nouveau. You can see it perfectly at Casa Vicens. Gaudi cited the moorish style one can find at the Alhambra. He didn't copy it, but brought it into a new art nouveau interpretation.

So the reason why you find so many eclectic structures at those facades is, that they are art nouveau.

"Less is more" is modernist and minimalist motto, proclaimed in architecture by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969). Casa Vicens was finished before van der Rohe was even born and most buildings posted in this topic were built while he was only teenager
"Less is more" is not an universal rule, it's just a conception of one of the many architectural styles.
