That looks like a cartoonish version of a victorian second empire building. Why is it so hard for modern architecture to get proportions right? It's not that hard, hell I'm not even an architect and I could do a million times better job at getting proportions right.

A lot of it has to do with trying to fit modern living spaces and modern preferences into a historic style.

That's more postmodern than traditional IMO. Look at the grid of small windows to the left of the corner turret.

The architect set up a hierarchy in the facade where the top floor gets double arched windows above the larger arched windows on the second-to-last floor. This was common in the late 1800s, roughly based on H.H. Richardson's work and the Palazzo Medici in Florence. You divide the tower into a base, shaft, and capital like a column, with heavy stone walls and small windows at the bottom, and lots of narrow windows side-by-side at the top. Think about it like the building is rising out of the earth and gradually fading away into the sky (metaphorically).

This architect used that pattern, but decided to play around with it and throw in some unrelated grids and such. That's alright, but you have to be good.

It's possible that he put in small windows to mask a bathroom or closet area, but that's a failure to properly design the floorplan. Even in that circumstance, there are still options available to reconcile the two.
