  • Headquarters-Administration Building (Julie Nicoletta)

The one-story concrete building stands at the head of a U-shaped drive between the administrative-industrial and the housing areas. The simple structure has a symmetrical, five-bay facade with a side-facing gable roof. Concrete quoins cast with the walls add a decorative touch. Two slightly lower wings project from the sides of the central mass.
