Banco Mortgage Company Service Center

-A A +A
1980, The Durrant Group. Northeast corner of Hammond Ave. and Flammang Dr.

The office complex exists in a business “park” atmosphere; one could label the style late Corporate International Style Modern, realized through horizontal banded volumes which in part overlook and are mirrored in an adjacent artificial lake. The only giveaway of its date comes in the occurrence of a low glass-and-metal barrel vault, which creates the usual high circulation atrium.
