Art Deco - Old Omaha


This very distinctive style is also rare in Omaha, though you can find some examples outside of the single-family home mode (like the current Hotel Deco on 15th and Harney and Omaha’s Union Station). The style is characterized by a flat roof with smooth walls (usually stucco). What makes the style distinctive is the geometrical embellishments on the facade and decorative elements that project above the roof to give structures a vertical focus.
