Designed by the brothers Louis Theodore and Mark Obel in 1936, both architects who favoured Art Deco design, Circle Court is an impressive building, carefully adapted to its non – symmetrical site, once towering over the intersection from which its name derives. Clarendon Circle was a famous landmark – a large traffic circle surrounding an island of grass and palms – replaced by traffic lights in 1959.  LT Obel lived in the building and died here in 1956.
