PROJECT ARCHITECT:
Mart Stam

BUILDING TYPE:
Office buildings

The facade of this office building consists of a glazed curtain wall slung between two brick side walls. A row of set-back balconies on the upper level, steel window-cleaners' ledges, a sleek projecting entrance awning and freely placed small balconies reminiscent of Gropius's design for the Bauhaus in Dessau, add just the right degree of modulation to the taut glass facade.
