Excellent work. I notice some building techniques which I have never seen, like the corner facade of the second floor. I especially like the roof, it's awesome! Maybe 2 tips if I may: try changing colours to sand-green and dark-red? Also maybe create a pavement with some pedestrians and some more details on the first floor, like lamps, signs, plants etc to give the building a liveable function.

Thanks for the comments. You are right, it can be taken apart in sections, I've posted a photo to show that. Let me know what details you'd like and I'll put more photos up.
Quoting Henrik Hoexbroe Looks like this one has some interessting building techniques, so some interior/detail views would definatly be nice. It looks like the whole thing can be taken apart in sections, right┐?

Thanks for the comment and question. I was going to do an interior, but I ran out of steam. - next time. The edges on the roof took a lot of experimentation to get right.
Quoting Andrew Tate Looks great, don't think ive seen any 'beau arts' styled MOC buildings before. I am also impressed with the roof cornering. Is there an interior?
