"Nay-Ro-El" Tribute to suburban Modenism in Hobart

This striking modernist flat duplex located in Hobart was designed in 1940, and is all the more exciting as it's in an suburb rich in 1930/40s period homes. Interestingly the name "NAY-RO-EL' is the builders name backwards - Leo Ryan. It contains 2 sets of symmetrical garages on either side of the building. Nay-Ro-El truly embraces the visions of modernism with geometric angles and minimal decoration.
