Bucharest Art Deco Apartment Block Doorway

The reduced to essence modernist outlines of this Art Deco doorway assembly and the use of materials with sombre chromatics betray the source of inspiration for this design in the Italian architectural fashions of the late 1930s, currents that had a strong influence among the Romanian architectural designers of that time.


I endeavor through this series of daily articles to inspire appreciation of the historic houses of Romania, a virtually undiscovered, but fascinating chapter of European architectural history and heritage.


If you plan acquiring a historic property in Romania or start a renovation project, I would be delighted to advice you in sourcing the property, specialist research, planning permissions, restoration project management, etc. To discuss your particular plan please see my contact details in the Contact page of this weblog.
