CBD 01-001 Celso Ledesma Building

The segmental and broken pediments form the focal point of the Celso Ledesma Building which was constructed in 1923. The facade is composed of five bays ( 4 symmetrical bays and a central bay ). Each bay division is flanked by scrolled pilasters urmounted by urns on draped plinths. Three ( 3 ) panels defined by smaller pilasters with the same scrolled design further divide a portion of each bay. Large windows with uncut balusters run the whole length of the 2nd floor facade. The parapet has a running ribbon and flower motif which are repeated on the pilasters at the ground level. Pilasters at the ground level flank Doric Columns with scrolled capitals.
