I don't know if it is done with intention, but I like how it is possible to distinguish the new parts of the walls from the old with the horizontal lines.

More photos of Füzér.

Keep in mind that this is a two-phased project and construction work is still far from complete. The first phase only concentrates on the Castle Wing, the Chapel and the Lower Bastion.

I love that chapel. The naked stone walls contrast nicely with the starry ceiling. I hope they leave it that way.

Castle Coch (red castle in Welsh) in Cardiff

John Crichton-Stuart, the 3rd Marquess of Bute, inherited the castle in 1848. One of Britain's wealthiest men, with interests in architecture and antiquarian studies, he employed the architect William Burges to reconstruct the castle, "as a country residence for occasional occupation in the summer", using the medieval remains as a basis for the design. Burges rebuilt the outside of the castle between 1875 and 1879, before turning to the interior; he died in 1881 and the work was finished by Burges's remaining team in 1891. Bute reintroduced commercial viticulture into Britain, planting a vineyard just below the castle, and wine production continued until the First World War. The Marquess made little use of his new retreat and in 1950 his grandson, the 5th Marquess of Bute, placed it into the care of the state. It is now controlled by the Welsh heritage agency Cadw.

Fragments of the original building, the rules of the gothic/renaissance architecture (golden ratio, etc.) analogies from same age, masters or procurer, original or later drawings, engravings, pictures. For example about Diósgyőr:

Or the reconstruction of a stove:


etc.

Yes, the historical authenticity is important.

I like that approach. It might not be as imaginative as during historicist times, but you get more authentically feeling results probably and it'll all age very well.
