Art Deco Era House Numbers

House numbers dating from Bucharest's Art Deco era. (©Valentin Mandache)

The house numbers presented in the montage above adorn a series of Art Deco buildings in central areas of Bucharest and date from 1929 to late 1930s. I like the futuristic shape of the example positioned in the middle of the image. The house numbers through their interesting design and the sense of modernity that they manage to exude constitute veritable Art Deco statements in their own right.


I endeavor through this daily series of images and small 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.
