Mayfels Restaurant, Asheville

Mayfels Restaurant, AshevilleMayfels restaurant occupies this building in Asheville. A plain building, at first glance, with simple decoration above fluted columns. However, the tiles above the windows carry a wealth of subtle detail.

The first row of tiles feature chevrons, the second row ziggauraut forms.

The column capitals consist of an arrangement of geometric shapes and an element which could be in the form of a feature.

I like the way the pattern emerges from the facade when light hits the ridges on the tiles. No need for complicated colour schemes.
