Another retirement mansard

Another mansard retirement home for you, this time in Evanston, IL. My Evanston man-on-the-street Dan Consiglio sent it. He wonders if it is called Mansard Arms.

  1. Ya' know, I think I've finally figured out why these modern mansards are so bloody unattractive: they look like someone just dropped a mansard hat (and an ugly one at that) right on top of the building, without the thought that went into the historical examples we see elsewhere. Just 'plop', et voila!, and you have a roof. Hmm, mansard hat...hmmm. That might make a pretty good Halloween costume: "I'm a Bad Mansard!".
