      The architect Llewellyn E. Williams was Sydney born and trained. He came to New Zealand in 1917 and joined the notable Wellington architect Frederick de Jersey Clere in practice. With Clere he designed St Mary of the Angels (1919-21, Record no. 36, Category I), St Barnabas Church, Khandallah (1921), St Andrews on the Terrace (Record no. 3571, Category I) and Inverleith Flats, Oriental Bay (1922, Record no. 1396).

      From 1923 he formed his own practice and designed a number of prominent Wellington buildings, such as the De Luxe Theatre (1924, now Embassy Theatre, Record no. 7500, Category I), Druids Chambers, Lambton Quay (1923, Record no. 3615, Category II), Todd Motors Building, Courtenay Place (1926), Kelvin Chambers, The Terrace (1927), and Civic Chambers, Cuba Street (1927, Record no. 7209) and part of the façade of Kirkcaldie and Stains, Lambton Quay (1928, Record no. 1401, Category II). He also designed or remodelled other theatres; both in Wellington (such as the now demolished Regent Theatre and Kings Theatre - both 1926) and in other cities, such as the Embassy Theatre, Auckland, the Avon Theatre, Christchurch (1934, Record no. 3092, Category II) and Regent Theatre, Greymouth (1935, Record no. 7552, Category II). Many of Williams’ 1930s buildings are in the Art Deco style.
