Majorca Building

Karen E Camilleri

Melbourne, Australia

Artist's Description

This building derives its name from the Meditarranean island that also inspired the broadly Spanish styling, the deep sea blue, and the shell motifs in the ‘faience’ (a type of tile) façade. Designed by architect Harry Norris, it was completed in 1930 as offices and showrooms, with multiple retail outlets along Centre Place, now one of Melbourne’s most vibrant lanes.

The Majorca Building has recently undergone a conversion to apartments above the ground level retail outlets. (curtesy of internet)
