Art Deco Offices - Hobart
This Art Deco building on the corner of Davey & Murray Street was erected in 1937. The building forms part of what is referred to as 'Parliament Square'. Many of the buildings are being sold off, whilst other Modernist gems such as 10 Murray Street (viewable in the photograph in the background to the left) are planned to be demolished.
Plans show that the Art Deco office block had top level floors added in the latter part of the 20th Century and these are set to be removed as part of the development. Note the interesting door entrance details and the sweeping curve at the corner of the building, as well as steal frame windows.
