1938-40 by Otto R Salvisberg of Zurich in association with C Stanley Brown, with
later additions. The original factory buildings lie in axis with but behind and
to the left of the original administration block whose entrance is on its short
end. The construction is of reinforced concrete and the factory buildings are
steel framed; external surfaces are rendered in an off-white colour. The administration
block is 2-storeyed with the bronze entrance doors set well back behind pilotis
and with 7 narrow, deeply set vertical windows in the wall above. To the right,
the principal staircase in a glazed door, the only feature to break the austerely
white cubic form of the group of buildings. The factory buildings 4-storeyed
with single-storeyed spurs. Metal casement windows Georgian in proportion but
closely set in long horizontal bands and the general horizontality of the building
is further emphasized by the widely projecting flat roof.
