Streamline Red Brick Home - Launceston

The use of red brick was very common in Tasmania in the 20th century, and this Streamline Moderne home in Launceston is no exception.  It's use of curved brick forms is captivating and really makes the home stand out from the crowd, as does the winding footpath leading to the front door.  The impact comes from the use of different toned red bricks, as it apparent through the darker bricks that form the external fireplace, and make it a real centerpiece of the design, as was common in many Modernist homes of the period.
