Lady Gowrie Family & Child Centre

This project involves the conversion of existing warehouses & garage into a Family & Child Centre for Lady Gowrie Tasmania.   A new three storey building acts as an entry / reception to the centre for clients and visitors.

In keeping with Lady Gowrie’s ethos of using natural materials the building is proposed to be clad in timber and is designed to reference a series of stacked timber blocks.  By placing the blocks in a ‘Jenga’ like arrangement it is hoped that the building will have an element of playfulness that appeals to the centre’s primary user - the children - whilst being refined enough to sit comfortably in the residential South Hobart setting.

The ‘blocks’ act to break up the mass of the building, stepping the form so that the size is diminished from the street as well as providing a scale that relates to the users. Carefully placed openings and screening allow natural light into the building and views for the occupants without impeding the privacy of the neighbouring properties.

Internally, the spaces are designed to enhance the integrated childcare / training aspects of the centre with a large degree of transparency between play spaces, training rooms, and resource areas so that passive observation can occur and a learning environment is created for both children and adults alike. 

Sitting between the training & child oriented spaces, it is proposed to convert the central warehouse into an atrium which provides a sheltered outdoor play space and acts as a central social space for the centre.

Coal River Farm

Our latest project is a farm-gate and restaurant is located on amazing site  in the coal valley

The building is designed to be a modern interpretation of a rural farm, with buildings scattered on the hill overlooking the valley. Internally the building will be like a gallery or temple in which food / produce is displayed in a way that celebrates it.

A Contested Landscape

As part of the 10 Days on the Island Festival, Domain House will be open to the public and act as the backdrop to a number of installations.  The catalogue reads:



"A group of noted artists use the building as their ephemeral gallery to consider the concept of nature and culture, traditionally seen as opposites, a divide separating the wild from the tamed.
Guided by curator Noel Frankham, Professor of Art with the University of Tasmania, some of the artists explore the history, characteristics and fabric of Domain House while others respond to the exterior environment.
Artists featured in the exhibition include Lisa Anderson, Lucy Bleach, Patricia Brassington, Lindsay Broughton, Steven Carson, Ruth Frost, Megan Keating, Milan Milojevic, Brigita Ozolins, Geoff Parr, Troy Ruffels, Marie Sierra, David Stephenson, Lucia Usmiani, John Vella, Martin Walch and Paul Zika.”

Cumulus on the Waterfront.
The Mawson’s Skate (iceskating rink) under construction on Hobart’s Waterfront, getting ready for the Holiday Season.  The project involves placement of two relocatable containers (nothing that new there) around a new public artificial skating rink.  Because, despite the rumours, its not that cold in Hobart we have folded some metal skins over the containers to resemble ice.  Stay tuned for more construction photos.

Folded Cladding
Investigatory model to test shape and size of the folded metal cladding for two shipping containers as part of Mawson’s Skate.  The folded metal, which will be white on the finished project, is crystalline in structure and evocative of ice / snow.

Architecture Week
As part of Architecture Week this year one of our models appears as a guest in a local bookshop amongst the architecture books… seems appropriate.  See if you can spot it in your travels.
