Minimalist Art Deco Style Doorway

The design is characterised by a minimalist modernist decoration of lines arranged in rectangular patterns, with just one ‘flamboyant’ element in the form of a stylised sunburst among clouds, placed at centre of the composition.


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.
