Old Glory Insurance Building

Post  rgb on Sun Feb 20, 2011 2:13 pm

I started this one after coming home from the last PennLUG meeting. The name comes from a Saturday Night Live skit ( My second tallest building, after City Hall, but that only had three regular floors while this one has five.

Like most of my other buildings, this one is still pretty monochromatic. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not. Do you think this would have looked better with more color in it?

If it looks too tall in a layout, it could be shrunk down to three stories:

I love all the little details, especially on the upper floors. As for color, seeing as it's white, i don't know what secondary color I would use, to be honest. It looks fine as is.

Fantastic looking building Rob. I think the hight is great. It's an insurance building, it's so posed to look big, permanent and institution like. And the color looks fine. It's very classical in appearance. Once it's nestled in with other building I think it will look just great. Awesome work.

Nice work as usually Rob. Keep it up and the town protion of the layout will become known as Robville.

Another fine creation! Gotta love the attention to detail. As for the color question, I say keep it as is. I feel that color would distract from the facade's intricate design.
