The Torin Corporation, formerly the Torrington Manufacturing Company, produced air-moving equipment and had its headquarters in Torrington, CT. The successor firm to Marcel Breuer and Associates, MBA, designed a tenth project for the Torin Corporation after Breuer’s retirement in 1976. The low building featured many familiar design elements from Breuer’s earlier projects for the company; it was clad in vertical metal siding with horizontal strips of windows, this time on the east and south elevations. A triangular volume projected from the roof and was glazed on the northern side, funneling light into the assembly plant.
