Site measure for a new project to convert a 1920s coffin factory into urban housing.
We're excited to announce that this year, Longview Avenue (c.1958/2016) will be included in the program for Open House Hobart. Two separate tours will be led by Dr. Stuart King - Senior Lecturer in Architecture and Design from @unimelb on Sunday 10th November. Edith Emery, the original architect of the house, was an exceptional practitioner - who was largely unrecognised in her lifetime. On the evening of Thursday 14th November, a public conversation between us and her son - Michael Emery - will be hosted by @brickworksbp as part of the Open House events program. A fascinating and prolific mind, Emery's work and legacy is an important part of the fabric of Tasmania's Modernist architectural heritage. Thanks also to the current owners and our client for allowing access to the house. The 2019 @oh hobart program goes live at the 7pm launch on Friday 11th October. Check the program for details - as well as opportunities to access other amazing projects and events. . . . @oh hobart

Upon the gentle shoulder of a hill, which forms part of an estate of a new Benedictine Priory in Tasmania, we have designed a Lady Chapel for the celebration of The Annunciation. Set amongst open pasture, and approached across the lower slopes, the chapel is entered through a low-lit cloister, into a gilded space for intimate Monastic worship. Inspired by Simone Martini's triptych "The Annunciation with St. Margaret and St. Ansanus" c1333, and the paintings of Henry Ossawa Tanner, the chapel is conceived as an instrument for praise. It is a space of acoustic luminosity, able to hold enveloping silence for private prayer, as well as to resound with collective praise. The Chapel interior is acoustically designed with a long reverberation-time, to amplify the Gregorian chant, as if joined by a heavenly chorus. A single low opening in the base of the chamber is aligned to sunrise on March 25th, the Feast Day of the Annunciation. At Lauds, the chapel interior is most intensely
Last night at the 2019 Tasmanian Architecture awards, within a broad field of exceptional projects, krakani lumi received the John Lee Archer Triennial Prize. The prize recognizes a single work within the series of previously awarded projects from the preceeding three years. The citation reads: "krakani lumi is extraordinary in a number of ways. It adds to the body of architectural knowledge by deploying an inventive use of lightweight half domes hung within cartesian boxes. The spaces recall ancient connections to shelter, place and country, without being imitative. The sensitive siting, placing and orientation of the ensemble appears to complete a composition already suggested by the existing landscape. This is further heightened in the inventive details; where edges dissolve, where buildings open and close, and where the ground itself is revealed as an engaging view. To have achieved all this without the use of glass is a huge success. A timeless, almost primal place is, very
