Going back to 1906, this magnificent Flemish Renaissance-style edifice increasingly entraps the public. White Oamaru limestone facings on black basalt rock, creates a timeless and dramatic air.

The grandiose style and rich embellishments earned architect George Troup the nickname of Gingerbread George.
