Office building 1930 - doubts about style

Hi, I'm new here
I'm an architecture student, and I'm working on a renewal of this building shown in photos. I'm interested on any ideas you might have about what styles can be found in this composition.

What I know and I researched about the building for the moment:
This building belonged to ELMA industry and it was built around 1930 (even if some sources tell us 1924; that was the date of the foundation of that industry though).

1. Any ideas of the style used in the facades?
I've been comparing it to Hugh Ferris drawings, I was told also to look for Tony Garniers architecture, which has got many points in common, ...

2. It was one of the first trials of concrete in building in basque country, and as you can see, the inner structure is designed as a wooden structure.

There we have some helpful photos:
Building:


Inner photo:


Catalog image (year 1930)


I thank all of you beforehand for your help!

It looks like early modernism. Try to take a look at Auguste Perret's work.

This page could also be interesting.

I hope I've been able to help you a bit, as I'm actually not a architecture specialist but simply an enthusiast.

Hi Lambrequin! Thanks for your response!
I found some interesting buildings of Auguste Perret.
I was also checking newyorks buildings of that time, around 1920-30 and I found some project ideas, which remind me also to this particular building. But of course, this one was built in smaller proportions In this case, is the idea development of Christler building
Here you have the drawings. Aren't they bit similar, according to structure in facades?

Classic Architecture

Classical architecture is a style of architecture from the classical period. Classical architecture is derived from the architecture of ancient Greece and ancient Rome.
Classical and other old styles of architecture generally make for far more attractive streets and urban spaces

ThatOneGuy,
It has given me some keywords to find many interesting and comparable architecture! Thank you!!!

Lamberquin, Thanks for all the references!
I've been looking for these architects and their projects, but it seems to me (even if the dates are similar) that this style is more developed into the modernism than the building I'm examinating is.
Anyway some of this architects worked at the beginning earlier styles that can be compared to it Thanks again!

Transwall,
Yes, I agree also, it has got some classical architecture references like the base of the temple, the columns (much more plain), etc. Thanks for the ideas!
