280 Fort Street was constructed in 1976 and designed by local architectural firm Smith Carter. Originally programmed for the Carleton Club (a private men’s organisation), the structure is characteristically modern, and represented a stylistic shift from the club’s former residence built in 1880 on Main Street. The building’s assertive massing and geometric character are reinforced by a facade of uniform brown brick and angled slate-coloured skylights. The building is currently used by Yoga Public and the addition of new garage-style glass doors have obscured the original entrance.
