Views of the rear facade (north side)

Like the entry portico which cuts into the rectangular facade on the front, the north portico cuts into the rear. These two entrances are joined by a long internal hall/gallery. The rear portico is covered by a large square porch. See plan. Fluted columns, arranged in a circle, support the porch. See the wooden slats as fluting below.
Studios extend across the back of the building. See plan. These studios appear to have individual exits along the back as well as tall windows. The sides flanking the entrance vary only in terms of the fenestration.
