Architect: Ray Heffernan (1964)
Designed by renowned Tasmanian architect Ray Heffernan, the Alt-Na-Craig apartment block was built in 1964 and developed at a time when Hobart Lord Mayor John Soundy was championing higher-density city living. At only 37 square metres, the north-facing apartment showcases the principles of good design that can improve human experience, including floor-to-ceiling glass windows that keep the apartment warm in winter and cool in summer.
The last in the block in original condition and decorated in mid-century style, this apartment is a timely and interesting example of well-designed, high-density housing at a time when major cities are experiencing a housing crisis.
