Narrow building



Recently on Tallinas street I noticed this building which is unusual due to it's narrowness - land owner apparently had a very small land plot where to expand. It has been tried to compensate with building's design which is quite a posh for it's area where buildings in overall are simpler. Despite of the fact, that the architect himself later has called this building as his "youth's mistake", I really like it.

  1. What a fine building- late 19th century or early 20th century?

  4. I like it a lot, especially the door with the round top and the copper detail in the middle. It is cool. One would not get bored looking at it.
