Built in the Interwar period in the Palazzo style
A massive stretched palazzo constructed of reinforced concrete and featuring 4 distinctive sections. A modern take on the piano nobile as a base, a stretched facade featuring projecting faceted bays of a highly contrasting material, a balcony separating 2 stories of early corbusian windows crowned by a series of twin columned giant orders and giant arched windows. The entire composition is framed and accentuated by modest treatment of the building flanks. An overall classically powerful building. The building terminates the vista of Market Street from the Yarra river.
