My apartment building

Owing to its history of more than 400 years, Buenos Aires has some amazing architecture.  There are many buildings that utilise materials that you wont find in modern buildings.  I love the entrance to my apartment building with its use of marble and old fashioned lights.  And then after you enter there is a staircase with beautiful iron railing, etched windows and art deco light fixtures.

There is a film noir-esque feeling to stairs, depending on how the light changes.  I have manipulated the light to help achieve this, but at night you get the feeling anyway.


From our back patio there is a view of the amazing stairwell window, that when lit up at night, is quite a sight.  You dont get the full effect from the photos but you can begin to see the detail that has been put into the image.
