I love this style. Reminds me of nature.

Unlike our other famous Art Nouveau building, the Cazino, this one is in fantastic shape.

Pogačnik House
Ljubljana, Slovenia




Year of plan: 1902
Designer: Ciril Metod Koch
Contractor: Valentin Accetto
lnvestor: Josip in Štefan Pogačnik
Building type: apartment house
Source: ZAL, Reg I. sv. XVI/2, f. 151 O

Pogačnik's house, which occupies the central site in the western facade of the square in front of the Palace of Justice, is a classically conceived tenant apartment house with a symmetrical, centrally arranged ground plan, which is also reflected on the facade. The central accent of the facade composition is an elegant portal crowned with a stucco relief representing a typical fin-de-siecle female figure with extended arms, holding plant branches in her hands. Koch patterned his Ljubljana work on then fashionable Viennese Secession models, and it ha s be en ascertained 1 that he borrowed this female figure directly from the plans for the facade of the Vienna Workers' Hall by Adolf Ritter von Inffeld, which had be en published in 1901 in the magazine, Der Architect. In general, the facade of Pogačnik house is created on the above mentioned, somewhat reworked pattern. The ground-floor band of windows is linked with horizontal lines cut into the plaster, and the upper two floors are vertically connected with strips which fali from medallions beneath the eaves and continue between the windows of the second floor, where they are interconnected with wide bands of stylised leaves.

These beautiful buildings are not Art Nouveau at all.

Ansonia is clearly Beaux Arts style.

Alwyn Court in most sources considered French Renaissance style. Probably my favorite building in New York and in top-10 world favorite buildings
