Daily Picture 20-Nov-09: ‘Little Paris’ Style House Renovation

A rare recent example of a better Bucharest period property renovation project (there are still on display the ugly air conditioning units, the clumsy addition of an uncomfortable low ceiling 1st floor or the replacement of the old and expensive to restore wrought iron street fence with a cheaper characterless mock period one). The house is a turn of the c20th 'Little Paris' style building (Romania provincially interpreted French c19th architectural styles), ASE area, Bucharest. (©Valentin Mandache)

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