A dome for you and me

Some of you might remember this building in Bonn, I've already shown it a while ago. It's still very appealing to me & my wife, and whenever we pass by there, we imagine living in and below that dome and having much fun in that house. (Location)

I can see why you both dream of living there it's wonderful.
there is a similar building in a city near to us, which is also a bank, I'll have to go and take some shots so we can compare the styles of architecture :)

@MaryB: I'm up for it! Maybe we'll move to there if we like it. :-)

@Ana Lúcia: It's one of the three greater squares in the city where you can have some distance to your object.

An interesting piece of architecture you have captured here; particularly with the dormer windows. Nice detail in the facade as well.

@Steven: Bonn has many old buildings, but this one is quite special. :-)

It would be a great location. Maybe after the revolution, commrade.

There are still a FEW such building left in Bucharest (Romania) in same style.....but not for long, I believe, with this rush to destroy everything old and build highrisers, the higher, the better.....I love the way this building looks, it is definitely well taken care of!Your choice of angle is putting it in the best light!

@Japanalia: It's a shame to see how many buildings that survived WW II were eventually teared down in the 1960s and 70s. I know cities here that destroyed their old towns (often medieval buildings!) in favour of modern 70s architecture. Within 40 years these cities look more ruined than the really old buildings would never have looked in the several centuries before. This trend still continues, as many great buildings from the 50s are now demolished in order to make room for lifeless glass palaces.
