former Dental and Medical Chambers, Hastings

Dental & Medical Chambers, HastingsThis streamline building in Hastings, NZ is the former Dental and Medical Chambers dating from 1935 and designed by Davies and Phillips.

The symmetrical single storey building has offices with curved walls projecting from the facade at each end.

Curves at the ends of a low, stepped wall bearing three heavily incised lines mark the main entrance.

Perhaps the most distinctive feature is the triangle-shaped window projecting from the wall above the entrance.
