Northern Natural Gas Building Omaha, NE
John Latenser & Sons were the architects of the Northern Natural Gas Building. The original low rise building was designed in 1951. The 15-story tower addition was designed in 1957. The building was designed during the Modern Movement and is a fine example of the International Style. It is on the National Register of Historic Places.
The building is dressed in red granite, buff colored brick masonry, glass curtain wall and stainless steel accents. The composition of form and materials creates a sense of modern corporate power, strength, stability and beauty.
The steel structural system allows for an open plan concept with a centralized mechanical core. Natural day lighting plays an important role, adding significantly to the interior spatial quality and overall spatial experience.
