The house

Maritimo is a landmark Brisbane riverfront home designed by prominent local architects, Hall and Prentice – the architects of Brisbane City Hall; and built in 1925 by renowned Brisbane builder, George Henry Turner as his personal residence. Turner was a highly regarded local builder, responsible for New Farm Powerhouse and the Light Street Tram Depot. The house retains a direct line of sight to the Powerhouse across the river to New Farm maintaining this historic connection.
