Above is illustrated a typical kitchen in one of the flats at Marino Gardens.

Built on the site of an old suburban home, the block is surrounded by gardens, shrubs and fine old trees. A hard tennis court with brick shelter pavilion completes the garden layout. The exterior walls are plastered in dark cream tone with warm buff quoins and frieze band, on red brick base. The roof is of terracotta tiles in blended shades of red, brown and purple. The metal work, spoutings, rainwater pipes, etc., are of copper unpainted. Window surrounds painted in pale green. Inside, the entrances are finished in toned plaster, the halls and principal rooms in paper and wall board, and kitchens and bathrooms in bright enamel, in shades of pale green, cream and apricot. The ground floor ceilings are of insulating board, natural finish, to reduce the transmission of noise. Entrance ceilings have a toned and textured finish.
