Description Change this

This fiscal administration building stands on a tapering corner lot, its layout consists of two wings which closely follow the street line. At the corner, there is a semi-cylindrical glazed stairwell which dominates the building composition. It reminds of some of the works of Soviet constructivists. Originally a four-storey building, it received an additional floor later on. In the floor plan, offices are very efficiently arranged so that both wings have a simple two-aisle and sometimes just a single-aisle layout. The building is one of the best works of architect Scheer, displaying his trademark simplicity and lightness.
