65 Murray Street is a most curious building; built in two parts, six storeys at a time, it was for many years one of Hobart’s tallest building at 12 storeys high. It is married together with consistent internal detailing of timber panelling and curved door fenestrations in the foyer spaces and a stunning terrazzo staircase. However, externally, there are some differences, with changes to the window treatments in the upper six storeys as construction methodology progressed.
