“Importance in demonstrating the principal characteristics of a class of cultural places and objects.”
The Footscray Psychiatric Centre, Maribrynong (VHR H2395), is a notable example of a community mental health facility, demonstrating the principal characteristics of the class through its size, siting and internal layout. It is also a notable example of a Brutalist building, exhibiting a particularly monolithic interpretation of that class of design.
Stawell Court House (VHR H1997), built in 1878-79 is a particularly fine example of a large court house in the Victorian Free Classical style. It incorporates the key features of a recessed entry, arcade, gallery and hipped roof.
