In architecture, this is the kind of unsympathetic addition we like: one which has the same articulated fluency and attention to detail as the piece it is superimposed on. Of course it is all crumbling apart and has a ton of spurious elements. But the marbled horizontal lines, chrome hardware, quarter-curve motif and beautiful signage retain all their 1930s glory. Although it’s not in direct harmony with the much older house above, the effect ends up being complimentary rather than offensive, as unfortunately most modern storefronts under old buildings are.
