Neo-Classical Doors

My door theme for this week includes doors that are part of a Neo-Classical entry design. The first common elements associated with this theme are columns that have a Classical motif. In my first example, the columns are a “faux” element applied to the simple exterior of an industrial building. The other two examples include actual columns – with the third one having columns that physically support a portico above the main entrance.

The second common element is the fanlight window above each door. All three windows have radiating mullions which fan out from the top of the door.

All of these door images are from Toronto, where this style of architecture is often referred to as “Georgian.”
