Facts

  • This building is State Heritage listed.
  • The demand for light and air were met by the architect who designed the building to have six light areas and glazed partition walls.
  • Architecturally the building is dominated by deep balconies between prominently detailed bow windows.
  • In 1989, to make way for the Myer Centre, the majority of the building was demolished, virtually leaving only the façade.
  • The architect also ensured equable temperatures in the building by means of cavity walls and a 'super' roof that consisted of a concrete ceiling over the top storey.
  • The large public hall features a dance floor on the main floor.
  • The façade is robustly handled with great use made of the interplay of light and shade.
  • The building was popular with the medical and dental professions, as patients could rest on the large balconies after light operations.
  • The façade is vertically terminated by a great arch above the tiered balconies on the top floor.
