M… Madison

When my friend Caleb was in Madison for a conference, he took some great pictures of Deco for me, including several of this grand building, so I knew when I got to M, I’d have to post another picture. This one is great capture by agilitynut, who documents architecture on Roadside Architecture.

Madison, WisconsinSubmitted by sailaweigh 
BEAUTIFULLY designed buidling in Madison, which (I have heard tales) is a beautiful place and a wonderful place to live.
From sailaweigh:

Currently apartment housing under the name Quisling Terrace in Madison, WI, this building started out life as a doctor’s office for the four Quisling brothers. I always loved this building, because it was my doctor’s office and the inside was so restful, with it’s graceful curving walls, aquatic-themed windows and artwork and the shiny brass handrails. It almost got demolished in 1998, but was saved by a developer who converted it into low-cost apartments for people who make only 60% of the median income in Wisconsin.

Found another pic of this building. It looks a lot like a Beaux Arts building near me, just with different style ornamentation.
