Kyle House

Kyle House
Kyle House is located at 27-31 Macquarie Place in the Sydney CBD. The McArthur Shipping and Agency Co Ltd commissioned the innovative young architect C. Bruce Dellit to design a new building for the site in 1931.

The interwar style Art Deco Kyle House opened towards the end of 1931. The building was constructed by Stuart Bros.

One of the prominant features of Dellit's design is the impressive granite entrance portal and stairways.

The central clock between the the two stairways under the porch arch is also a novel feature.
