The South Shore Cultural Center was originally built in 1905. We're currently restoring the outdoor theater promenade, ornamental windows and entry doors, ornamental reception rooms, and the entry pergola, colonnade, and trellis. What a beautiful and historic institution!
St Basil’s Cathedral, Moscow, Russia 🇷🇺 Repost: @nataabramova_ ⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️ It took me a while to find the name of this cathedral! Hence this slightly late post. Well this iconic Russian church has a lot of history.... ❄️The St Basil’s Cathedral was commissioned by the first Russian Tsar, Ivan the Terrible in 1554 ❄️There are nine strategically placed chapels inside this cathedral! ❄️This point struck me to be the most surprising: this vibrant colourful church used to be white before! Do you think St Basil’s Church would have looked beautiful in white? Comment below
Sharing one of our recently started projects that we are very excited about. There is a lot of demo work and even more trash but we are making progress and looking forward to the next phase! #jwconstruction #CreateSomethingRemarkable #BrownstoneReno ————— #construction #builders #architecture #massachusetts #newengland #boston #brownstone #renovation #framing #carpentry #demo #demolition #city #views #bostonconstruction #bostonbrownstone #historicarchitecture #historicpreservation #gopro #goproconstruction

As much as I do miss Vancouver I must admit my affection for our neighborhood - Townsite in Powell River, BC. It’s roots are with the paper mill that was the impetus for this city. The Townsite began in the 1910’s and the roughly 400 houses were built to accommodate the mill’s workforce. The neighbourhood is organized hierarchically with the homes of the top managers highest on the hill and closest to the mill. Further down the street there are the superintendents houses (one is ours) and behind this road which faces the ocean the homes of the general mill workers. The mill owned all these homes until the 1950’s when they were sold off. In the 1990’s Townsite was awarded the distinction by the Canadian government of being a National Historic District of Canada (one of seven in Canada and the only one in Western Canada). #townsite #historichomes #heritageneighbourhood #historicpreservation #historicarchitecture #britishcolumbia #beautifulbc #archi_ologie

The "Römer" --> it's the medieval city hall of Frankfurt am Main...but don't forget the changing "renovation" in the 19th century and the rebuilding after World War II 🛠😉 In the foreground you can see some buildings from the 50s.

Queen street, Brisbane, 1864. How times have changed! 🕰 #LimesHotel
Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul . ☆ Katedrála svatého Petra a Pavla . With its origins dating back to the 11th century, the then romanesque chapel was rebuilt as a gothic basilica in the 14th century. Later changes included altering the interior in the baroque fashion. From 1904-1911 the exterior received a neogothic face-lift and the two towers were added. . . . . #brno #ceskarepublika #czech #czechrepublic #morava #travel #europe #architecture #arquitectura #архитектура #church #cathedral #churchesofinstagram #neogothic #historicarchitecture #cityscape #travellovers #loves_czech #europestyle_czechrepublic #instatravel #jiznimorava #visitczechrepublic #visitcz

Indonesia - Bukittinggi, Sep 1988. This structure in Lawang is probably a small village surau, an Islamic assembly building used for worship, festive prayers and religious instruction. Minankabau surau in Sumatra were built up high on posts, with multi-tiers and exaggerated height.
St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in Menasha, Wisconsin. An 1883 gothic revival beauty towering above an otherwise industrial town.

Check out Conservator Andy Compton applying white wash to the ceiling of the Front Parlor! As it dries, the wash changes from the cream color visible around the ornament to the brilliant white on the rest of the ceiling. . . . #mountvernon #historicpreservation #architecture #historicalarchaeology #historicarchitecture #restoration #georgewashington #history #education #discovery #research
