Its All in the Details
The architecture in the building is fascinating throughout. This is one of the many wall corners. I love the details. I am not sure what these are called and doubt that many residents have noticed their existence, but someone had to design each of these. I would guess that they were carved by hand, considering how old he building is. This style appears in the stairways and in various apartments.
Our apartment has circular archways into the kitchen and dining room. The archways don’t come down in a straight line but create full circle. There are circular pieces of wood throughout. Out neighbors have one bedroom and three bathrooms. One of the bathrooms has been turned into a closet with wood over the tub and pipes sticking out in various directions. This detail is a great testament to the artistic architecture throughout the building.
