One more find of a cheerful, creative Seattle roofline for you. This scalloped portico's shape extends through to become the interior ceiling of this White Center neighborhood commercial building in West Seattle. Playing with geometry and repeats seems to have been a very popular commercial design feature in the 1950s and 1960s. Construction didn't seem to to be of superior quality, though, so if not well-maintained, they might rapidly deteriorate.
