Home State Bank, North Highway 4 Office

-A A +A
1973–1974, Charles Herbert and Associates. Southeast corner of N. Elm (Iowa 4) and Stanford streets

Located on the developing commercial strip leading into town is this well-detailed excursion into High Art architecture. The building's basic shape, that of a bisected triangular volume, is in many ways typical of low commercial buildings of the late 1960s and 1970s; but what aren't typical are the cherry-red walls, effectively set off against the thick green lawn.
