Art Deco Streamline Gem - Launceston

This wonderful example of streamline design is Art Deco style at its best. It's one of only a few examples in Launceston whereby the curves are stepped in sections. Another example is this residence. The home features an original garage under the residence, as well as to the left of the above photo. The windows are all intact and in original condition. Again, like so many modernist homes the front garden is in keeping with the period - clean cut and minimalist in its design.

  1. What an amazing piece of architecture.. do you know who the architect was and what year the building was completed? I wonder if it was built as one family home - it looks as if it has a lot of rooms.
