Venetian condominimum AllaBelozerova Empire State College
This condo minimum was built several years ago to provide Brooklyneers with Manhattan-style luxury. This condo is located in Midwood neighborhood, on Avenue P, and occupies the whole block between East 2nd and East 3rd Streets.
The architectural style, as well as the name, tell us that this building was designed in classical style of Renaissance era of Italian architecture (http://www.venetiancondony.com/).
There is a pattern of one large rectangular window on the second floor with two rows of three smaller rectangular windows on third and fourth floors and double columns between them.
There is a combination of straight lines, semicircular balcony and roof, and triangular roofs.
The large arch over relatively small doors on the first floor provides a sense of an extra-large entrance.
Here, an arch over columns gives a perception of an extra-tall door entrance.
The forged lattice and columns of the balcony
The outward-curling acanthus adds elegance to the overall picture
