Lansdowne Street streetscape

Lansdowne Street streetscape

As the immediate land between University Avenue and Waterloo Row was developed in the early 1900’s, it followed suit that the fashionable architectural style of the day was observed. Fire Insurance maps of the period show that the Craftsman style Bungalows lining Lansdowne Street (Nos. 29, 31, 48, 49 & 59) were built in or around 1911. Taken as a group, they present an exceptional environment that is both consistent in scale and form, yet varied through the individual idiosyncrasies of each house’s detail. This streetscape bears witness to the strong design possibilities and "variations on a theme" offered by the Bungalow.
