A very jazzy, decorated building for a bank which is normally more conservative.
Fine looking building, did the bank go bust
Bill, banks once had a branch in almost every town and suburb across Australia. About twenty years ago they started shutting down all their small branches so that these days only suburbs with larger commercial hubs or regional towns have branches.
I remember when this was a bank as I lived in Arncliffe and I still drive past every week when I see my mum. It has always been a lovely piece of architecture that thankfully has survived.
Nice period building!
That is a fabulous building!
Although this is very different architecture than our banks, it is still very much a BANK! Lovely
NOW....THAT IS ONE COOL BUILDING...Looks like it should be in a movie...:)Thanks for coming by....
an interesting building. is this art deco style?
Yes it is art deco. The Commonwealth Bank built a lot of branches in this style.
Oh no, I don't like the new colour scheme. Love Art Deco.
My earliest memories of this building were that it was creams and pale yellow, which looked great. In recent times it was pale blue and then purple which was quite hideous. The greys don't seem too bad in comparison,
Not often that frey tones could be regarded as impressive, but they are on this art deco building. Not sure if they quite complement the style though. An interesting one.
It seems grey tones are in mode at the moment with so many buildings turning various shades of grey across the city.
Spectacular modern building! love the color.
Looks a bit art deco to me. Like the gray and the way it curves around the corner, Nice perspective for this shot.
