La Scala

Fortitude Valley

This unusual three storey timber house was designed by TR Hall, one half of the dynamic duo responsible for City Hall, and built at the start of World War I for a Dr Matheson who called it Craig Athol and lived on the upper 2 floors while running his surgery from the ground.

The design was unique and innovative for its time (and remains so today) thanks to its large rooftop for outdoor living, its bay window stairwell and stylistic trimmings. After Dr Matheson’s departure it continued its run of doctor owners until the 1970’s when it was subdivided into flats. Today it has been restored and the ground floor divided into three tenancies, none of them medical.
