Two buildings in focus

Originally published at:

I think both buildings have architecture representative of the old, but will there be one that can meet the challenge of being converted to a greater extent?

both buildings are in Manhatan NY

The red building (Delmonico’s Restaurant) is a restaurant and departments
The white building (German Bank Building) was a bank but today works as departments as well

May be to choose something I need create some sketches to develop the best option
I would like read your opinion to help me to decide



The facade details are pretty classy with the stone/concrete veneer. One idea you could toy with is to show each building with different styles and interject some juxtaposition when viewed as a whole or in context. Either that or have each building complement each other, but I am just tossing ideas out there. :relieved:
