Revitalized


This old building on St Clair Ave was looking rather rundown and uncared for until a local architect bought it and did a total renovation to house her firm as well as some tenants. I like all of the different shapes of windows but what really attracted me was the shadows painted by each window. I love that the shadows go in different directions. I hope this qualifies as a mural. Now the building looks like a treasure on its corner.

This is pretty amazing. At first I couldn't tell if those were even real windows or if they were painted too. Nicely done!

At first I thought I don't see anything and then I realized what I was looking at, it's great!

Oh that is excellent Pat, the windows look three dimensional. So nice to see something a bit different from the norm 💜

An ingenious way to add interest to an otherwise rather functional building. Who would have thought that such a transformation could be achieved with just a pot of grey paint and some imagination.

The added shadows are a great addition. The buiding definitely got a nice update and looks fantastic.

Trompe de l'oeil - an optical illusion!

It looks very smart and I like the 3D paint effect around the windows.

That is unusual.

Had to look carefully at this building, and yes, I think it qualifies as a mural. Interesting shadow lines. Good to have old buildings refurbished. These buildings help keep the neighborhood alive and vital.
