Sunray Flats - Hobart

These iconic streamline flats in Hobart were designed in 1940 by Hartley Wilson & Philp (both Architects were responsible for many Modernist designs in Tasmania) and these units demonstrate an excellent example of Streamline style.  I have been told that the original features are still in-tact in the flats.  The exterior features such as the windows, white painted curves and staircase are all features that are of interest.

  1. My parents had a 2 storey-house EXACTLY like that. I love the memories, thank you :)
