Wednesday Doorway: rouge


A red door in Chantiers neighbourhood. The whole building is quite nice, isn't it?

Porte rouge à Chantiers. L'immeuble n'est pas mal, n'est-ce pas ?

Love, love, love that red door.

Magpie said...

Rouge...that one I know. Red! :)
I love the brickwork.

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

It's very nice! I like that little smiley thingy above the door...and the decorations on the building between the windows!

Woody said...

I like the copper head above the door, I bet it would make a great piggy-bank ;-)

Jack said...

Yes, Ciel, the red door is impressive, but the brick tilework is what really catches my eye.

Halcyon said...

I cannot resist a red door.

The entire building is very aesthetic! Beautiful workmanship!

Theanne and Baron said...

The door, the building all magnificent...all pleases my eye and makes me happy!

Olivier said...

en effet l'immeuble est tres beau (et la lumiere qui lui tombe dessus aide) , j'aime bien ces vieux immeubles tout en briques (et cette delimitation avec les pierres)

I always like red doors, to me they are happy and welcoming.

ALAIN said...

Ton sur ton. Avec ses linteaux en poutrelles d'acier, il ressemble un peu au "immeubles industriels" Parisiens.

VP said...

Absolutely! One of the fanciest doorways ever and the rest of the building is perfectly on line.

Très beau, très "nord" vu du sud (on n'a pas de maisons en brique ici). très bien entretenu. J'aime bien la tête au-dessus de la porte, c'est la final touch qui rehausse le tout.

And RED it is. I like it!! MB

Pierre, fer, brique, verre, une belle variété de matériaux avec bois aussi d'ailleurs. Ce serait facile de démonter cette maison et de la reconstruire ailleurs (et même au Japon ou aux EU) si jamais on se décidait de construire un barrage et de noyer Versailles...

Pas mal!!!!
I like the door but I'm really enchanted for the brick, the colors there and those windows.By the way, perfect angles in these shots!

porte révolutionnaire pour Versailles

It's lovely door and so is the building.

T. Becque said...

Lovely - I would have photographed that too!

Gunn said...

..... and I guess I have to poke my camera up too.
Beautiful details and nice warm colors.

Beautiful red doors and the iron over the windows is gorgeous. The decorative brickwork is very nice also and certainly nothing like that is done today - it's far too expensive; or maybe the architects/builders lack an artistic soul.

Ah, herrlich, denn ich liebe Backsteine in ihren natürlichen Farben. Herzliche Grüße von Luzia.

Becky said...

Ah, what a lovely door! I absolutely love the scrollwork of the iron windows, and the bright red is eye-catching.

It's more than just nice. It's fantastic! :-)
