The Oak Harbor Clean Water Facility design is inviting and texturally pleasing to the eye. Features include dark brick, a light gray tile pattern adjacent wall, and light wood accents.

Combining shades of gray and darker brick gives the building a modern, simple look.

Offsetting the brick and color pattern creates stronger depth, keeping the building from looking two-dimensional. Masonry details and crooked rooftop lines add an interesting appeal to the building as you look from a distance.
