An Argentine Tours Atlanta - Thanks Norberto

Hooked on Houses is hosting her "Hooked on Fridays" blog party; I hope y'all will click here and have look. Today, I'm hooked on an Argentinian's (Norberto Feal) pictures of Atlanta. Certainly Norberto is an Architecture Tourist of the first order. I'm very happy to have a new perspective. And -by the way- this is my 200th post as Architecture Tourist.

Last week I was honored to receive this email. I guess he found me by Googling "Atlanta Architecture."
I write you from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Last year I visit Atlanta: I was
enjoy your wonderful city; and now I am writing an article -I am
architecture historian and critic- about David Yocum & Brian Bell Atlanta
office of architecture; and I discover your blog: Nice.

I send you the photos of some Atlanta buildings that I love.

Regards
Norberto (Feal)
So lets have a look. This first one in is near Murphy Avenue, near the office of architects Brian Bell and David Yocum. This is a neighborhood that time has nearly forgotten. Not anyone's destination but it's full of fascinating reminders.

Near-Murphy-Avenue-Detail-Oval-Permits

What a porch!

Near-Murphy-Avenue

Love the delicate details on the columns, the mini dentils, the transoms over windows and doors, beefy window moldings. Looks like there are permits in the oval window. Somebody has recognized this jewel.

This is the modest stair to a conservative facade in Ansley Park. From here you'd never guess that the back side of the house is ultra modern.

35-Lafayette-Drive

What was Norberto thinking? I'd say that this 4-square is still getting the job done perhaps after a variety of assignments. Who doesn't love the picket fence on the wall.

1012-Jumper-Street

Getting down to the details: Diamond lights and impossibly proportioned shutters make the whole window into something else, just something else. And what about the brick coins?

Are there repurposed IHOPs (International House Of Pancakes) in Argentina? I hope so.

Thanks so much Norberto. Hope you get back to Atlanta.

Thanks to Hooked on Houses' "Hooked on Fridays" blog party.

  5. I am powerless in the face of a good porch. And I love how that house is full of slightly less than straight lines...what a great connection to have made with a fellow fan of Atlanta!

  8. Hi ,

    Thanks for writing such an interesting article. It’s really good to know about the real estate and home furnishings in detail. We love our windows because they let in the light and give us a view of the outside world but we don’t enjoy our windows quite so much if they are cold and drafty. If this sounds like your home, could be you need to check with a knowledgeable Atlanta window installation company. Windows do wear out, which can make them very inadequate at doing their job. Old style wooden windows are especially notorious for their poor insulating ability. The panes become loose once the glazing dries out and windows need re-glazing every few years. The change of seasons can mean climbing a ladder to install the storm windows or replace them with screen.



    Installing new windows is probably one of the easiest ways to improve the energy efficiency of your home and they look great too! If you decide to sell your home in the future, new windows can actually increase your sale price substantially. But window installation is not a do-it-yourself project for the average homeowner. To get the job done right you really should have your windows installed by a professional Atlanta window installation company.



    Thanks,

  10. Hi ,

    Thanks for writing such an interesting article. It’s really good to know about the contractors in detail. If you’re thinking about building a new home or remodeling your existing one, then you’ll need to look for a dependable Eugene general contractor to handle your project. After you have a set of plans and the financing is in place, your next step will be hiring the best Eugene general contractor you can find. The general contractor you choose will be responsible for taking your plans and making your dream a reality. The contractor will take care of such things as building permits, bookkeeping, managing subcontractors and the delivery of building supplies as they are needed.

    A lot of people don’t know where to look when they need to hire a reputable Eugene general contractor they feel they can turn their entire project over to. If they end up with a contractor they are unsure of, the entire project can make for a very stressful time and the homeowner worries constantly about the outcome. So whether you are building a new house or simply undertaking a kitchen or bath remodel you need to find a Eugene general contractor you feel you can trust to provide quality workmanship and dependable service.

    Thanks,

  11. Fencing makes a great backdrop for landscaped properties. It would seem like a great idea to contact your local Houston fence establishment when you to add to this the reality that fencing will give you an impressive return on your investment. Adding a fence is good value all around.

  12. Hi ,

    Thanks for writing such an interesting article. It’s really good to know about the real estate and home decoration and renovation in detail. Do your floors look old and worn? Maybe it’s time to call Chicago flooring company. Flooring is always a main consideration when thinking about building or renovating a home. We want our floors to look as beautiful as the rest of our home. But what if the floor is showing excessive wear or it’s just time for a change? Many people think they can do without Chicago flooring company.

    Home improvement centers show off a number of different flooring types such as carpeting, varieties of vinyl, ceramic and marble tiles as well as hardwood or “hardwood look” flooring. You have seen the tools and kits for do-it-yourself installation. So it must be fairly easy for the homeowner to tackle a self installation when it comes to flooring, right? Purchasing state of the art tools for a flooring job does not mean that the job will be done correctly. Home improvement centers will readily sell you anything that is required to put down your own floors but if you’re a novice will you be happy with end results?Chicago flooring company can provide you with a lovely floor minus the aggravation!

    Thanks,

  13. Hi ,

    Thanks for writing such an interesting article. It’s really good to know about the real estate and home decoration and renovation in detail. The most common natural stone for Omaha Countertops in our market place area is granite. Granite is an excellent source of all natural, very durable and aesthetically pleasing finished material. Nature provides over 100 different granite types. Granite is most often imported from Brazil, Italy, India and China. However, many more countries supply granite, including the US. Another excellent source of natural stone is marble. Mr. Granite has installed marble, mostly in bathrooms. You can find marble in many commercial buildings. Natural stones are the architect’s choice of fine finish building material for interior and exterior applications. Examples of exterior applications are the Woodmen Tower, the Joslyn Art Museum, the Union Pacific building, the Court House, etc.
