Office Buildings

Multi-storey office buildings - many of which were constructed for banking and insurance firms during the 1930's and early 1940's - are testament to the impact of early modernism in Sydney.

Despite restrictions which prevented these towers reaching the heights of many of their American counterparts, they remain some of its most ambitious manifestations.

This page is inteded to feature images of all the surviving examples in central Sydney and nearby suburbs.
