Once a watering hole, a brothel and a popular nightclub, 39 Salamanca Place is a colourful Hobart address. It was a building site at last year’s Open House, and now it’s finished for your perusal. The new tenant is Moss, a boutique hotel that inhabits the upper floors of a colonial sandstone warehouse. Touching on the history of the buildings, the original 1834 timber beams and tin roof have been retained, while layers of plaster have been peeled back to reveal the convict-cut bricks beneath.
Address: 39/41 Salamanca Place, Hobart
