Another example of the many Art Deco buildings in Asmara.
The sign above the door on the right reads Red Sea Pension and the building presents a sweeping curve from a central driveway.
The wings have simple windows and a continuous concrete eyebrow providing some shade.
The central driveway has curved walls each side of the entrance which are continued onto the second storey where the roofline reaches slightly higher than the rest of the building.
Each end of this raised section supports a thin metal flagpole which is often preferred in Asmara to the usual wooden ones.
