NOTES: This is one of four branches of Olivetti offices, built at the same time to a similar design in the cities of Carlisle, Belfast, Derby and Dundee. All of the metal surfaces, including girders, radiators and trunking were painted bright colours, although varying from office to office. Usually a combination of emerald green, bright blue and bright red was employed. The roofs were a bright yellow plastic, although the one at Belfast was considered too orange and was replaced with a grey one.
