This is what used to be the old medical/surgical building at a former state hospital.

Good symmetry here; the arched window and twin radiators (?) are perfectly balanced...
Abandoned asylums and hospitals can produce some really haunting images...there has to be some emotional subtext that influences such thoughts...brrrr
Fine entry, Ana...

Robert, in my local photo clubs, a way overdone HDR of an old building shows up in every show, and for some reason they keep winning...the op's phito shows it can be done succesfully without the overdone HDR.
