Originally constructed in 1926, Devlin Apartments is a fine example of the “Georgian Revival” style and was designed by the notable architect E Evan Smith, State Government Architect for Victoria. Housing aspiring Geelong students since the 1920s, the heritage listed Gordon Junior Technical School has had a proud history and will now once again showcase the brilliant architecture with the most elegant of finishes.
One could not deny the importance of maintaining the heritage exterior for this truly iconic building.
Transforming into 27 fully self contained luxury apartments and 10 motel style rooms, Devlin Apartments will be individually managed, targeting a niche sector and Geelong’s short term accommodation market.
For the first time in Geelong, Devlin Apartments will offer luxury accommodation at an official 4.5 star rating encompassing three distinct architectural and designer styled apartments. These three unique designs resonate with the historical values, whilst offering style and comfort of the 21st Century.
The splendor of the past will be heralded throughout the building by way of superior architecture and interior design features complimented by historical images within the public areas, beautifully transforming the once boisterous school halls into a pictorial testament to its past.
Devlin Apartments is certainly a building with soul.
