Heinen's Restoration of former Cleveland Trust Bank

Thumbnails from inside the food hall,
so much intricate detail. 
View from the balcony on the second level.
Exterior view from 9th & Euclid.
It was great to spend a few hours and really study the interior restoration of this historic building. I find it's easiest to do quick thumbnails to distill down the intricate details into basic shapes. Then continue on to making the sketches. Beautiful carvings, stained glass and the arched rotunda make this one of Cleveland's jewels and has similarities to Harrod's Food Hall in London.

  1. Miraculously! It bears a strong similarity to a Harrod's, really! I can tell it as well for sure!
