The city of Paris has notable examples of architecture of every period, from the Middle Ages to the 21st century. It was the birthplace of the Gothic style, and has important monuments of the French Renaissance, Classical revival, the Flamboyant style of the reign of Napoleon III, the Belle Époque, and the Art Nouveau style.

The architecture style of this building belong to the Belle Époque period. The architecture of Paris created during the Belle Époque, between 1871 and the beginning of the First World War in 1914, was notable for its variety of different styles, from Beaux-Arts, neo-Byzantine and neo-Gothic to Art Nouveau, and Art Deco. It was also known for its lavish decoration and its imaginative use of both new and traditional materials, including iron, plate glass, colored tile and reinforced concrete.

In case of this pictured building, this latter is haussmannian style from the last breathes of this wave, late 19th c. early 20th c., when creativity were added to the original haussmannien style. This is remarkable with the rounded corners/angles of the face and this dome capping the building.
