Notable features

The Anzac House is a restrained Renaissance Revival style building which subtly complements the buildings at the eastern end of Collins Street. As such, Anzac House is important for the streetscape relationship with adjacent buildings including Portland House and Alcaston House. Oakley and Parkes, accomplished proponents of the emerging modern style, integrated details from this movement within the interiors of ANZAC House to contrast with the notable Renaissance Palazzo facade.
