Roehl/Phillips Furniture, 308 South 2nd Street; rebuilt 1960; Phil Feddersen, Architect, of Clinton.The front façade of face brick is relieved by two vertical strip of louvers. Integrated into these strips are casement windows with copper roof projections and "balconies) of stucco facing. The ground-floor store windows are recessed to form an arcade. The design by Clinton architect Phil Feddersen can best be described as "Wrightian". Based upon compositional and design elements familiar to the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, Feddersen created a building of warmth, human scale, and aesthetic appeal. The integration of the signage into the design is especially notable.
