The Nicholas Building , designed by Harry Norris in 1926, is a classical palazzo (grand building) in terracotta tile. Built as a demonstration of the wealth of the Nicholas family, the building today is full of artists’ studios and designers. Having managed to escape being turned into apartments, it’s one of the few unrenovated buildings of its type left in the city.
