Psi of Relief

Neuro Alley - (BTT) Besides the odd couch-jumping actor, I think we can all agree that mental health is as important as physical health, and those who dedicate their lives to the field are certainly worthy of respect. They are also worthy of having a great building in which to practice, and the doctor in this psychiatrist office has just that. The palette might be simple - mostly grey with just a tasteful touch of green - but the detailing is anything but. On the first floor is the receptionist, while upstairs is the actual office with a rather angry athlete currently taking his spot on the couch.

Streamline and Seam Lines

Century Drive - (BTT) Not all Art Deco buildings are cut from the same cloth. Trading decorative panels and sharp angles for smooth surfaces and elegant curves, this Streamline Moderne shop is the perfect showcase of the style. Speaking of style, those wanting to make a fashion statement are strongly encouraged to step inside and pick up one of their signature pieces - perhaps not cheap, but can you really put a price on looking so good?

Aquatic Accommodations

Chantilly, France - (BTT) There's vacationing in style, and then there's this. The aptly named Fountain Castle - not just because of the brilliant blue hues on its facade but also because of the actual fountains on the garden side - is truly a grand hotel. Once you are done admiring the exquisite exterior details, from the wide variety of windows to the wonderful patina on the copper roof, feel free to step inside to find your bed and enjoy a night in true landmark.

The Maltese Barber

1228 Destinity Road - (BTT) Always a fan of odd pairings, this dark green building is certainly as eclectic as it is beautiful. One the ground floor is a barber - perfect for those who have too much hair get some much needed relief. Upstairs is a detective's office, with the P.I. currently talking to a mysterious blonde straight out of a film noir classic. Finally, in the attic, a world-trekking explorer enjoys being surrounded by the spoils of his adventures.
