Statement of Significance

An outstanding example of the Moderne style in Melbourne, Mitchell House was built in 1937 as offices for the brush manufacturers Thos. Mitchell & Co. It was designed by the architect, Harry Norris, as a two-stage 10 storey building. The additional four floors of the second stage were never completed. The external render sections were originally finished in white cement which, together with its columnless corners and horizontal bands of glass, gave it a thoroughly modern streamlined look.
