Even on this relatively dull day in 2003 the cream and coral colours stand out.
Namaqua House was built in 1929 to a design by architects Roberts & Small. The top floor features a cantilevered balcony on each of the two face of the corner-sited building. The Cape Town Art Deco Architecture Map indicates his is an early use of such cantilevered balconies.
The balconies and corresponding sheltering canopies are the most decorated parts of the building.
