City Sanitation Office, Asmara

former City Sanitation Office, Asmara, EritreaThe former City Sanitation Office is on the Massawa Road on the outskirts of Asmara. It was built around 1938 and is now used as an office/garage.

The building has symetrical wings constructed in red brick with a entrance topped with a clock tower and a large semi-circular balcont. The clocktower, in turn, is topped by two thin flagpoles. This central section is concrete or rendered and painted white contrasting with the simple red bricks of the rest of the building.
