Linear Park Apartments

13-1 Linear Park Apartments

The colloquially known ‘Tepid Baths’ is well remembered by generations of Hobartians as an institution with notorious but effective ‘learn to swim’ teaching methods.  The site now accommodates a contemporary 25-apartment building over six levels with a secured basement car park below, constructed over the former swimming pool on the rear portion of the site adjacent to the Hobart Rivulet.  Our significant design contribution was to retain the heritage-listed red-brick building fronting Collins Street (previously slated for demolition) which is to be refurbished as commercial office suites and a cafe, and which will provide a contemporary new entrance to the complex.  The success of the proposed development was demonstrated by strong pre-construction sales of 22 of the apartments, which are now nearing completion.
