Neo-Baroque meets Secession

Houses in Linken Wienzeile (a street in Vienna).

 

The white building is built in the Baroque Revival style. Its neighbor to the right is the famous Majolikahaus by Otto Wagner (1898). The floors of the two buildings are misaligned but are joined by a "balcony column".

 

About the left building: "A good example of what Wagner was rebelling against can be seen next door, at Linke Wienzeile 42, where decorative enthusiasm has blossomed into baroque-revival hysteria."
