As always, each building is treated individually as appropriate, beginning with general views to establish context

and moving closer and closer through the exterior and interiors, with attention to situation, massing, daylighting,

surface treatments, and details, with extra attention to special distinguishing features such as the use of ornamental

ceramics, stone carving, or hand wrought hardware.
