Federation House, The: Australia’s Own Style

Hugh Fraser


Sold Out

Federation-style housing is a unique and fascinating period of Australia’s architectural history. Distinctive features of the Federation style are high-pitched roofs, forming a picturesque composition of great complexity, which incorporated gables, chimneys and verandahs. The timber woodwork of verandahs and archways and leadlights of casement windows reveal the influence of Art Nouveau, but with nationalistic overtones. Rusticated sandstone blocks form a rugged base tying the house to its landscaped garden. Compiled by Elaine Rushbrooke. pp. 127 illusts #0819R/0620/0621 (Edge-wear to jacket.)
