San Antonio, the Alamo complex

Is it a surprise to find this decorative door installed in a  rustic building?  Is the rational placement of the panel doors and transoms under the portico really rustic?  Is the perforated parapet?  Is a sophisticated building hiding behind primitive materials?  Has the architect hidden a diamond in the rough?
