The Street of Deco

This modernist home is just a few doors down from the iconic 1940s set of flats called "Nay-Ro-El" This home follows in a similar vein to the Nay-Ro-El with its geometric shapes. It's nice to see this home still retain its original windows and steel frame windows. Often when windows are replaced they can really alter the look of a period home.


  1. This house, and the Nay-Ro-El block of flats, are stark, modern (for the era) and very smart. Are there any other white deco homes in this street?

  2. Yes, there are a number of modernist homes this area as the neighborhood was largely developed in the period during and after the war.
