Burnie Apartment Block

These 20th century apartment blocks just outside of the Burnie CBD grabbed my attention. I really like the colour mix of red and green. High-rise developments for housing is not the most common thread in Tasmania. A dual highway runs in front of the complex and the new plantings of salt loving plants (the flats overlook the beach) for me demonstrate modernity; that is multiple dual lane roads, minimalist planting style and functional living.
