RESIDENCES & COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS IN AVARÉ...PRÉDIOS RESIDENCIAIS & COMERCIAIS EM AVARÉ...

When I walk around the town I used to look to the buildings and check out the architecture. Several residences were converted to commercial use and there is a contrast between the first and second floor of those buildings and the commercial level at ground floor. A visual contrasts between the old and the new...  All photos were taken by my husband and myself in Avaré, State of São Paulo, Brazil.
Quando eu passeio por uma cidade eu gosto de olhar os prédios e apreciar sua arquitetura. Muitas antigas residências foram convertidas em prédios comerciais e há um contraste entre os andares superiores e o térreo. Um contraste entre o antigo e o novo... As fotos foram tiradas pelo meu marido e por mim em Avaré, SP.

  2. I like the buildings on the corner that are rounded off, and the yellow one with the art deco look.

    I saw a word I recognized:
    churrascaria - we have a restaurant here - Rio Churrascaria - but I've never been there.

  6. So many different styles - each beautiful in its own way - even the older ones must have looked great when first erected. Love the top of the building in the third photo from the top.
    I looked at those other houses too Sonia on the other post of November 2006 - the intricacies of the different architectures are just delightful.
    Such beautiful photos again Sonia.

  8. Again, Sonia...I am Fascinated by the "details" on all these buildings, weather in the special additions or the shapes and as in todays post, the colors, too!
    BEAUTIFUL!

  9. A utilização comercial destes casarões esconde um pouco a beleza original...mas ao menos os imóveis são conservados e não são demolidos, como acontece tanto no Brasil.
    A série de fotos esta belíssima como sempre, parabéns!
    Um beijo e uma linda semana para você.

  10. Really nice to see all these old buildings still there, although the present use of the ground floors not always has changed them to the better!

  11. Oh that yellow building is FABULOUS.
    I'll take that one please!
    Can't you just see me waving to you from the balcony!?

  14. I love the simplicity and colors of these buildings. And they are so clean. Even the streets are clean.

    I wish NYC's streets are as clean.

  23. I Love buildings! Like you said the 'pretty' ones and the 'not so pretty' that is what makes it so interesting! I put a few on my blog yesterday in my western 'gold rush' part of the world!

  24. What a wonderful stroll around your town, Sonia! The buildings have so much character. It's interesting to see the people going about their business, and the cars..I noticed the old VW bug in the last photo. I saw one go by our house just the other day, but it's rare to see them these days. I used to have a red one before I was married :)
    Thank you for the tour!

  26. Sonia, thanks SOOOO much for these beautiful posts, and the one of São José do Rio Pardo too. The variety of buildings, the colours, decorative details, just GREAT!!! That one on your new header with the sugar candy colours against the deep blue sky is stunning.

  28. Hi, Sonia, a cidade conserva essa arquitetura antiga, sem grande estragos.
    Usando cores e sempre com boa pintura mostra essa preocupação, a cidade deve ser bem tranquila.

  34. Sonia, eu gosto muito também de fotos assim de ruas, do dia-a-dia, de letreiros, nomes. Formidável. Muito sugestiva aquela casa Avaré 1,98... Naturalmente que deve ser o número da casa na rua, e aproveitaram para fundar uma 1,99, só que 1,98. Gostei. E o Instituto dos Aposentados do Brasil?! Cacau Mix!
    Um show de post, Sonia. Adorei. A Claudia já deve ter acessado, mesmo assim vou enviar pra ela.
    Abraços, parabéns, ótimo final de semana. Mande mais...

  35. Beautiful architecture!
    What fascinates me most, though, is the absence of any tree or bush or even weeds.
