Art Deco Streamline Home - Launceston

There are many great examples of Art Deco and 20th Century Modernist homes in the northern city of Launceston. This home is a great example of the Streamline Moderne style with it's smooth transitions and "wrap around" walls.

I would say the only unoriginal feature would be the staircase balustrade, and possibly the pink colour scheme and the lower windows. To view more photographs of Launceston residential houses and flats click here


  1. hmmm the pink is a bit... pink, isn't it? But the wrap around walls, the flat roof and the windows are fantastic. I love it.

  2. Whilst I would love to own that house and paint it white, I do quite like that pink.
