Mid-century modern buildings
Located at the busy intersection of South Beretania and Pikoi Streets is the unique Occidental Life Insurance Building designed by Lemmon, Freeth & Haines, circa 1951.
It’s a beautifully constructed early 1950s low-rise office building made from natural stone, concrete, aluminum and angled glass.
Not surprisingly, though, the real attraction is the 1967 addition of a cantilevered airport control-like tower – used as a boardroom – that really sets this building apart from its contemporaries.
It’s a definite eye catcher!
