Historical Cities

The building at No. 68, on the corner, is a building of Joseph Ricour and was completed in 1861. The cast iron elements boost the horizontal divisions and darken the white facades. On the street side facade, you can see the importance of the balcony. On the main floor, the balcony gives shape to the central part and, as a penthouse balcony, stresses the summit; it continues on the rounded corner on the top floor. Note the top of the facade extends the overall composition by the addition of a floor in the roof which becomes a full floor in itself (visible through the skylights).
