Interior South

-A A +A
1933, Jules Henri de Sibour. Constitution Ave. between 19th and 20th streets NW

This simple, four-story, white marble building is set in a terraced lawn thickly planted with trees and surrounded at the base by a balustrade. Aluminum window spandrels, each separated by fluted pilasters, and the gray tile roof provide a cool, restrained effect to the composition. The building originally housed Public Health Service offices and library.
