Engaging and energising, sensitive and bold – the Tasmanian Architecture Awards are characterised by outstanding educational facilities and unique houses.
June 23rd, 2011
The Australian Institute of Architects’ Tasmanian Architecture Awards were announced on Saturday 18 June, with educational facilities making up the majority of entries.
“The projects re-order and revamp existing buildings and engage and energise their surroundings,” said the jury of this year’s nominations.
The highest honour, the Alan C Walker Award for Public Architecture, went to Liminal Studio (formerly Forward Brianese & Partners) for the Ogilvie High School Student Learning Centre.
The jury praised the project for “delivering new life and creating a centre for the school, while symbolising contemporary teaching and learning.”
Morrison & Breytenbach were double winners for the Tarremah Hall at Tarremah Steiner School, taking out the Public Architecture and Sustainable Architecture Awards.
“The monolithic macrocarpa hall is a single sculptural element, robust and muscular in expression,” said the jury.
“The internal spaces are warm and engaging being totally clad in plywood, giving an enveloping and nurturing ambience to what otherwise is an extremely large volume.”
The Esmond Dorney Award for Residential Architecture went to Room 11 for the Allens Rivulet House 2, honoured for its “unyielding grid and contradictory spaces.”
Room 11’s Little Big House took out the Small Project Architecture Award.
Preston Lane Architects were awarded the Roy Sharrington Smith Award for Heritage and a Residential Architecture Alterations and Additions Award for Mount Pleasant House.
The People’s Choice Award went to Marion Bay House by 1 + 2 Architecture.
