Appraisal

Built as an extension to the adjoining building to the north, this pair make a positive contribution to the streetscape, due to the scale and form of the buildings. The irregular form contrasts with many of the buildings in the streetscape, and is of apparent architectural form and design. The materials utilised in the construction of this former warehouse add colour and textural interest, while the carved details enliven the fa├žade of this notable building. Design attributed to H. Hill. Originally designed for Baker & Wright.
