1993, Patrik Davis Associates. 947 S. 5th St. (northwest corner of Lot Ave.)

When asked to expand a plain brick building with a stucco box, the architect invoked artistic license and created a grouping of angled, rectangular bays, “like children's building blocks scattered across the site.” However, the addition is scaled to blend with the site and the parent building, whose dark red brick it matches while also using some contrasting pale pink stucco. Window sunscreens of copper tubing add a useful and playful note.
