Description

This building is at 38 Davey Street in central Hobart. It is at the rear of Parliament House and is part of the proposed Parliament Square redevelopment. The building adjoins the former St Mary’s Hospital building and early photographs show that it was built sometime between 1870 and 1890. The three-storey sandstone building combines Romanesque and Gothic Revival architecture. Romanesque features are the semi-circular arched entrance and rounded arch windows on the top level. The four lancet windows in the centre of the top level are Gothic in style. The building also has a crenelated parapet.
