The Hampshire House
The Hampshire House is easily recognizable from afar because of its two chimneys and crowned copper roof. The structure is known to have revived the spirit in the area after the Depression and is therefore and important place in Manhattan. The structure was built in 1931, but continued and completed in 1938. The rusticated and white design with aluminum and black granite trim combined with Spanish Baroque style of the building can be classified as a Modern Classicism. The interior of the rooms are also delicately designed. Contrasting colors of black, turquoise and white with glass door mouldings and mirrors make the rooms more than just elegant.
