Real Estate Agent with Precious Memories - Photography

A very brief description to help you identify an "Art Deco" style home or building...

A decorative style of the late 1920's and1930's. Rarely used in residential buildings; it was more widespread in public and commercial buildings of that time.

The distinct qualities of an art deco structures are easily recognized. Flat roofs, metal window casements, and smooth stucco walls with rectangular cut-outs mark the exteriors. The front or face of the building is typically flush with zigzags and other stylized floral, geometric motifs.

In the 1940's, Art Deco features evolved into curved corners, rectangular glass-block windows, and more of a boat-like appearance.
