Horizontally vertical Art Deco in Elizabeth Street

Repost from this day in 2019: The Beehive Building, Elizabeth Street, 1935. Love how architect #JosephPlottel took the vertical proportions and said, nah, let’s go horizontal ! Plottel was pretty prolific in the interwar years, best known for his many flats in a range of styles from Tudor to modernist, and the excellent #FootscrayTownHall. This is one of the many #tallthinbuildings found in the #melbCBD, about two terrace house lots wide, quite deep, and 12 storeys built up to the #132ftheightlimit.
