Additional Notes The Staff Club takes "full advantage of the easterly prospect of the main lake. Hence it is the external environment that is more important than the building itself which, despite its unusual form, is very simple." "As a cluster of circles it expresses a gathering place and its slight detachment from building lines sets it apart from the place of work." Pratt, Fuller.
