Wentworth House - Launceston

This small example of Modernist design is to be found in Launceston and its style reminds me of many buildings from a similar period from England.  It must be the colour of the brick work and the sand aggregate used on the upper part of the building as there is a of this colour used in the UK.  The vertical bands at eye level are made up of pebbles and concrete and I enjoy the symmetry created by the four vertical bands and the horizontal windows...and of course as I have a love of typeface, I loved the "Wentworth House" logo as well.
