Stop 1 Apartments Downtown

Stop 1 Apartments down town

Constructed in 1937 to a design by prominent Melbourne architects Hugh and Arthur Peck, this striking 'style moderne' block of ten flats in red brick features was purpose-built as rental accommodation. It has curved walls punctuated with contrasting lines and a flat roof. It represented the latest in European styling. The block also featured a row of garages on the boundary - an indication of sophistication in interwar Burnie. It is now a privately run hostel.
