1974–1978, Charles Herbert and Associates

Two narrow five-story boxes are connected by an intervening glass atrium. The roof of the atrium is in the form of a barrel vault, similar to many other glass-roofed buildings of the 1970s and 1980s. As is generally true of this firm's work, the building is carefully detailed, but in this instance its form and detail seem somewhat on the dry side.
