House of Quatrefoil

Many know how much I love the quatrefoil shape (and how controversial its use can be). Its pretty, curvy, yet strong and statement-making presence works perfectly in jewelry. I guess the person who designed this apartment building in the Recoleta neighborhood of Buenos Aires thought it was a great addition to a home as well. I have to agree.

The main entrance.

Front door detail.

The side entrance (there is one on each side of the main entrance). Very Confectionary.
Those little "awnings" over the windows are so sweet.

A beautiful column.

The metalwork in front of the windows.

Side entrance doors-so pretty!
It's hard not to love this shape. You probably can't buy this apartment building, but the jewelry is available here!
