Grand Designs From The Small Island

Architecture

It is our favourite time of year – when sticky-beaking into the country’s finest architecture is not only allowed, but encouraged!

The shortlist for the Tasmanian Architecture Awards have been announced, featuring the best of The Apple Isle’s talented architecture firms. Brace yourself for sweeping views, green roofs, contemporary curved glass pavilions, and cosy interiors – all inspired by the rich natural beauty of Tasmania.

‘As usual, a high level of inventiveness is evident’– Neal Mackintosh.

The 2019 Tasmanian Architecture Awards saw 40 entries spanning the entire state, over nine categories. From here the jury of three local architects and graduates, a guest architect and a guest juror have created a shortlist of 19 projects ‘from a treehouse to a major art museum exhibition’.

Jury chair Neal Mackintosh, director of Tasmanian firm JAWS Architects highlighted that ‘as usual, a high level of inventiveness is evident, with Tasmanian architects stretching lean budgets to produce spatially rich and engaging buildings’. Necessity is the master of invention, and Tasmanian architects are the masters of resourceful and beautiful design!

The winners in each category will be announced on July 6th, which leaves plenty of time for online swooning between now and then.
