Type of place
This unusual Spanish Mission style duplex was constructed in 1938 as an investment property for Percy and Emily Cox, residents in Clayfield. The set of two flats are predominately built of timber, with the front of the building stuccoed in the Spanish Mission style. Built by Stones Corner contractor, WR Lee, the interwar duplex is an unusual example of domestic Spanish Mission style architecture. It is important in demonstrating Brisbane’s development pattern in the late interwar period, in particular in Camp Hill, and the way in which ideas about acceptable forms of housing were changing.
