|St Catherine's Hall in Launceston is a great example of Modernist design style|
Community halls sprung up over Australia in the Post War period, and they provide an interesting social history that highlight the importance of halls such as St Catherine's that provided the community with a place to meet for events, functions, dances. St Catherine's Hall in Launceston is an excellent example of 1950s architecture and it's design qualities are many. The main entrance is fascinating with the use of a series of angled steel beams, the red brick facade, timber panelling and stone all combine to create a stunning, timeless example of Modernist community hall design. The "St Catherine's Hall" typeface on the main facade of the building oozes 1950s design style as well.
