Appraisal

Architectural design and detail are apparent in the form and construction of this building. The irregular form of the façade is enhanced by the stepped gable breakfront and the varying fenestration of the first floor and second floor. The variety of materials utilised in it's construction, such as the red brick, carved limestone, and sandstone add colour and textural contrast to the streetscape. The building retains many interesting features and materials, such as the shopfronts, polychrome tiled pilasters and polychrome tiled thresholds.
