Sawtooth Design Continued - Launceston Industrial Architecture

Continuing the theme of last weeks Burnie post I give you another example of sawtooth design, this time at an Industrial site in Launceston. This week's photograph highlights a close-up of sawtooth architecture showing the windows placed at each interval to let light flood inside. Just like the Burnie post from last week, this sawtooth Industrial piece of architecture is also at risk and its future remains uncertain.


  1. Nice shot, these sort of rooves always remind me of eatern bloc countries. They make good use of the natural light these windows allow in the stone building at Inveresk art school. It also meant that it was hard to tell what time of day it was!

    Which building is this?

  3. Yes the roofing design in fascinating and beautiful, they form part of the former Roberts Woolsheds.
