Australian Catholic Assurance (ACA) Building
112-118 Queen Street
Designed by Hennessy & Henessy and completed in 1937, this is one of the most attractive examples of the Moderne in Melbourne, with its concrete-derived ‘Benedict Stone’ cladding in pink, Jazz Moderne decoration, vertical fins, and a central tower thrusting above the 132ft height limit.
