Let us tell you more about this gorgeous Heritage Listing apartment building
A Heritage Victoria database entry for Majorca House, says: "The Moorish influence in its terracotta facade places it firmly within the Melbourne tradition of exotic architecture in the late 1920s."
This landmark on the city scene is one of the most beautiful pieces of architecture our city has. When you next walk along Degraves Street or Flinders Lane stop and have a peak at the Majorca Building, everything about it is decadent and harks back to art deco and luxury. The facade on the outside is blue and gold with gorgeous details like the twisted gold columns that run up and down next to the windows. The entry way is mainly dark wood that has been twisted and styled to look like a boutique entrance and the golden light behind the windows shines through and eliminated the whole entry way beautifully at night. The Majorca building has mainly residential apartments for some of the luckiest people in Melbourne. They not only have a beautiful piece of architecture to call home, but all the great cafes and stores on the ground level are their local shops.
