Art deco architecture and design is making a major comeback. We've rounded up eight projects celebrating the style, from renovations of historic structures to geometric new-builds.
Art Deco, short for Arts Décoratifs, is a visual arts style that spanned a range of disciplines, but its influence in architecture can be identified in geometric forms that draw on cubism, rich materials and bold colours.
The aesthetic emerged in France in the 1920s, from the International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts held in Paris. It spread internationally, influencing major projects like the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building in New York.
Just under 100 years later, the aesthetic is now experiencing a major revival in a slew of new projects. Read on to see eight of the best:
This hotel in Ibiza by Spanish studio Ilmiodesign features a stark white exterior, candy-coloured rooms and a 1920s-esque typeface that are intended to be reminiscent of the art deco architecture found along Miami Beach.
A 1930s bank on Paris' Champs-Élysées has become this home for French department store Galeries Lafayette, who will use it for hosting fashion shows, brand events and other activities.
Bjarke Ingels' firm BIG designed the transformation, which pairs period features with new ornate details.
Arched openings referencing the motif found in murals of the style moderne artwork puncture this kitchen extension. Designed by Australian practice Sans-Arc Studio for a small cottage in a suburb of Adelaide, the Plaster Fun House is intended to be at odds to the surrounding brickwork buildings.
"The space feels like an oasis – a bright, art-deco moment," said the firm.
Cera Stribley and The Stella Collective designed eight townhouses for a Melbourne suburb, taking cues from a number of surrounding period houses dating to the 1920s and -30s.
Details on the exterior include curving white brickwork walls and patterned tiles, while inside brass features, terazzo and geometric shapes allude to the style.
Details such as wooden and terrazzo floors were preserved during AvroKO's transformation of an art deco building in London into members club Mortimer House. New additions complement the aesthetic.
"We've tried to keep it within an aesthetic that feels natural," said the studio. "We did a lot of research into what would have been used at the time it was built."
Architecture and development firm DDG has designed a New York tower to take cues from the city's art deco structures.
Eschewing the common swathes of glass, the design features grey brickwork, concrete marked with chevron patters, and huge vaulted openings.
Brooklyn design firm Studio Tack has revived a historic hotel in San Francisco that is the famed location of legendary blues singer Billie Holiday's arrest for opium possession.
The design aims to evoke the Japanese wabi-sabi philosophy of celebrating imperfection, using clean lines and "humble materials".
Completing the list is an art-deco influenced supertall that CetraRuddy designed for Lower Manhattan in New York. Elements of the design referencing the style include thin bronze lines that will stretch up the slender glass facades.
