Plischke House in Nelson

In May 2012, a "new" Plischke house was discovered. In Melrose Terrace, Nelson, Plischke designed a home for Tom Griffin, the son of the Griffins Biscuits founder. Not listed in Sarnitz & Ottilinger, the house is nevertheless well documented, with plans held by the Nelson City Council. Done while Plischke was in partnership with Bob Fantl (1960-62), this is the only known work of Plischke's in Nelson.
