A point in time...
Built in 1905 the Beaucott Building is a fine example of a double storey Inter-War Functionalist building comprising shops at the street level and apartments above. Located on the north-east corner of the intersection of Beaufort and Walcott streets the name of this prominent local landmark is a mixture of the two street names.
The building represents the evolution of the commercial development of Mount Lawley since the early twentieth century, and its continued commercial use into the twenty first century. The Beaucott Building was one of the first commercial premises built in the area and was refurbished and extended in the Inter-War years (1937) in a contemporary Art Deco style.
The Building previously known as the shopping block is currently home to a liquor store, a Day spa, Picnic Hobbs women’s clothing and a lot more.
