"Valetta" Art Deco residence, Devonport - Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!  Thanks for dropping by and checking out my passion that is documenting 20th Century architecture and design in Tasmania.  I have some very exciting new projects coming up in 2013, stay tuned!

I was looking for a post to greet 2013, and the #297th post and came across this one in my collection. What a striking arched glass frontage this home has, also love the brick colour as well as the well maintained lawn.


  1. Definitely (another) beauty Thomas. I would love to live in a house called Valetta.
    Happy New Year.

  2. Yes, such a wonderful name, happy New Year to you Kylie!

  3. The arched glass frontage is indeed striking and it takes the house from being an ordinary, suburban redbrick residence to something that stands out. But it feels as if it might have been designed by two different architects, or one architect in two different time periods.

    Have a very successful 2013!

  4. Another wonderful photo and I am looking forward to your projects this year, Thomas.
    All the best,

  5. Nothing makes me love a house more than a house with a name :D
