Criterion Hotel (1937) 560 Hay St, Perth.
Architects: Hobbs and Forbes. Formerly named the Regatta Hotel, is the site of this last remaining Art Deco hotel in Perth’s CBD and has been a popular hostelry from colonial days. Notice the “skyscrapers” with flagpoles bracketing grouped windows and openings emphasising vertical lines and contrasts of light. Note the doors, ceilings, stairways, light fittings and leadlight windows. At the internal landing there are leadlight windows containing an Art Deco design motif.
