A commercial building that seems to be somewhere in between Nouveau and Deco.

Art Deco : 3 french airports.
Officially born in Paris during the “Exposition des Arts Décoratifs” in 1925, the art-deco mouvement has strongly influenced the international architecture between the two world wars.
Airfields need buildings to host travelers as they are waiting for their plane to be ready or to welcome them when they arrive. The first french Airport in Paris - Le Bourget was built in art-deco style. Bordeaux and Lyon, two other major french towns built their own at the same period, using the same architectural style.

There is quite a lot of really interested Deco in France, and I admit I need to post more of it. But for now, take a gander at this inspiring bit of theater front.

Hôtel des postes
Depuis la place Gambetta
Hôtel des postes construit par Pierre Chirol en 1932 dans un style art déco pour remplacer l’ancien bâtiment construit au XIXe le long de la rue de l’hôtel de ville (actuelle rue Jean Eudes).
L’angle de la rue Auber (place de la République) et de la rue Georges Lebret a été détruit pendant la bataille de Caen et reconstruit à l’identique (voir sur le site Caen et la SGM).
Les façades et la toiture sont inscrites aux monuments historiques depuis le 10 août 2010 (STAP du Calvados).
