The Old Treasury Buildings...



Definitely one of the most beautiful buildings in Perth can you believe the 19th century Old Treasury Buildings were left neglected and unloved for many years. Now known as the State Buildings, after an eight year restoration they are stunningly revitalized and part of an amazing space in the heart of the city Cathedral Square (fabulous old black and white shot of the Old Treasury on this link if you scroll down a bit). If you haven't already seen inside check out the short video here to see how it looks inside now. If you're interested you can read about the renovation details here. Happy Friday, take care and stay safe...

  3. Stunning entrance design. I like how the art of building design has a sense of being embossed on the facade.

  10. It is so short sighted to leave these beautiful building decay and sometimes demolishing them. How fortunate that this beauty was restored and saved!
