"Mar-Joy" Art Deco Gem
Mar-Joy is one of Launceston's best examples of streamline Art Deco. It's sweeping windows and an impressive main staircase entrance are stunning, as well as the chimney stacks. Being able to view the pitched roof takes a little away from the 'purist' pursuit of modernist design, but overall it's one of Launceston's top Art Deco period homes in my opinion.
