Art Deco garden gate

Art Deco garden gate, mid-1930s, Bucharest (©Valentin Mandache)

A simple, but well proportioned gate from the Art Deco era, in tone with its surroundings, giving access to the small garden adjacent to a mid 1930s apartment house from the Mantuleasa area of Bucharest.


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.
