Coronet Art Deco Apartment - Brisbane

Today Art Deco & Modernism Architecture Australia looks at an intriguing Art Deco design that form an apartment block in Brisbane. They would have to rate as one of the most interesting and stunning examples of Art Deco apartment design in Brisbane.
The flats were completed in 1933 and the interesting use of brick work that is stepped back from the main entrance is stunning, as other the other period embellishments such as tiles and glass work.


  1. It has been my aim for many years now to one day rent one of these flats, one day perhaps.

  2. Yes indeed Helen, it would be a lovely place to have a place in! I remember seeing just a while ago that one of the units were for sale...

  3. I saw that for sale ad as well but it just not the right time
