Formerly known as: Cabot Cafe COLLEGE GREEN. Cafe, now offices. 1904. By LaTrobe and Weston. Granite, limestone ashlar, copper and mosaic details, roof not visible. Single-depth plan. Art Nouveau style. 3 storeys, attic and basement; 3-window range. A symmetrical front has an altered ground floor clad in red granite with 3 chamfered openings, the right-hand pair opened into one, with a right-hand Tuscan column to a console and gablet above the fascia. Upper floors have pedimented 2-storey outer buttresses, with narrow full-height recessed windows, divided by copper hoods with Art Nouveau flowers to the first-floor windows, and third-floor oculi with moulded surrounds and festoons below the pediments. Between is a 2-storey, 4-light timber bow window, divided by a mosaic panel, a segmental arch above with alternate raised voussoirs, under a segmental flat canopy beneath the third-floor windows. The parapet curves down over the buttresses, with 3 tall narrow windows to the middle. INTERIOR: a right-hand stair flight with panelled sides, tall first-floor square balusters, plaster strapwork to ceilings throughout, and good Art Nouveau fireplaces with copper hoods, glazed tiles, and inlay, with tall segmental-arched surrounds.
