An abstract metal sculpture accents the angled glass and metal entrance to this three-story structure of buff brick and concrete set into a hill. The multipitched roof has large skylights and is surmounted by a diamond-shaped light tower over the central interior staircase. A sharp prow extension on the south is matched by a corresponding cutback into the facade to create a walled courtyard. The main interior floor is cut away on the northwest corner to overlook the lower level and provide a sense of openness.
