With its corbeled archways, shed-roofed balconies, and flying staircase, this Santa Barbara office building follows Andalusian prototypes with an aplomb equal to its predecessors of the 1920s.  The all-important proportion of wall to opening is carefully controlled to effectively mimic the look of adobe construction.  Graceful rainwater leaders, window shutters, and festive awnings on wrought-iron stanchions provide a finishing touch.
