Durban Addington Hospital Complex – Adornments

These buildings in Princes Street form part of the greater Addington Hospital Complex which was built in 1932.

For me these simple buildings are so significantly enhanced by simple architectural features and adornments. These simple but effective adornments are missing from modern buildings.
