Building No 3

As part of my series on odd buildings, I snapped this one in St Girons on the way to the St Lizier music festival.
It sits in quite a prominent road in the centre like a depressed lego brick. It seems to have no purpose, but no for sale sign on it either. The paint colour suggests a bruise, apart from the top which has a fresh layer of concrete—perhaps the top of the building tried to escape from the rest of itself. The doorway is a yawn and the shutters sleepy. I wonder if someone added the small quarry tile decoration in an attempt to liven it up, or was it put on at the time of construction.
Dental surgery? ministry of boredom? Concrete storage facility . . .?
