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 at the side of a prominent road in the town centre like a depressed lego brick; 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 - as if the top of the building had 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.

Dental surgery? Ministry of boredom? Concrete storage facility . . .?
