Milton House

21-25 Flinders Lane

 

Constructed in 1901 for the eminent surgeon William Moore, and an early purpose-built private hospital, the plain almost Georgian red brick façade is enlivened by some of Melbourne’s most delightful and earliest examples of Art Nouveau decoration. The architects were Sydney Smith & Ogg, but famed architect Robert Haddon most probably provided design details, especially elements such as the sinuous entry arch and iron work, tulip motif terra cotta panels and the extraordinary lead-lighting, all indicative of his work.
