Transcript Windowed UnTc connects fortress-like front and windowed rear block FIRST FLOOR two stories high, with i i-foot ceilings. The lobby in the service area is given the benefit of the full two-story ceiling height (see photos at right), and is connected to the offices in the rear by a neatly designed bridge. Also—and importantly—the parking space is in back, to keep the shiny automobile shapes from jarring the calm strength of this design.
