View of the front

This addition to the older "Gothic" library respects the context by using similar materials. See the bottom photograph on this page. The six-story curved form is not exactly symmetrical; the top at one end is slightly higher and fenestration is varied--tall narrow windows occupy several bays. (See middle photograph immediately below.)
