Descripción

Spanish architect Abelardo Lafuente designed the building to host the Star Garage, owned by Albert Cohen.

The cross-sectional A A view A A of the plan shows a structure of concrete with bidirectional beams. The building was originaly linked to the street row (the plan shows no lateral facades), which can be seen today in 702 West Nanjing Road.

Multiple historicist decorative details in the facade display Arabic-style motives in windows and friezes made of tiles, characteristic of the signature neo-Arabic style of Lafuente.
