This block of flats, called Ahlwyn, offer a nice contrast between the cream render surrounding the balconies and windows and the red brick of the rest of the structure.
They were constructed in 1936 to a design by Arthur W Plaisted in Park Street, South Yarra.
The metalwork on the fence and gate, to me, are reminicient of French deco metalwork.
The lettering above the front entrance which spells out the name and number of the flats add period style and sit in front of a series of horizontal lines set in the render.
The pair of lamps add another decorative element to the composition and even the brickwork above the entrance has small sections of bricks set out from the wall to provide further interest.
