The one-story, flat-roofed building, apparently built as an office, has light red brick laid in a running bond on all four elevations. The two-bay-wide west façade features a recessed, plate- glass door surrounded by fixed glass panes. The remainder of the façade contains a full-length plate-glass display window with aluminum muntins angled outward from the bottom in a manner characteristic of mid-century modern design. A planter extends along the bottom of the window. Side elevations have no openings, and the rear has a single metal door. There is no listing of this building in the 1963 Durham City Directory. The building with its modest modernist design is intact, but because it is less than fifty years old it is a noncontributing building
