2015 Tasmania Architecture Awards

The 2015 Tasmania Architecture Awards were announced on 27 June 2015 in the Huon Valley.

Two adaptations of historical sites were awarded in both the Heritage and Residential Architecture – Houses (Alterations and Additions) categories, including #thebarnTAS by workbylizandalex and Art & Craft by 1+2 Architecture.

The project #thebarnTAS by workbylizandalex adapted an 1829 horse stable into a home.

“As a family home, #thebarnTAS flourishes because of its constraints rather than despite them,” the jury said. “It is a home full of character and surprise, which celebrates the original envelope and atmosphere of the stable.”

The heritage-listed Art & Craft project by 1+2 Architecture converted a 1908 home, recieving a Heritage Award as well as the Australian Institute of Architects Award.

Practice Morrison & Breytenbach Architects did well across the board, with two of its projects receiving four awards including an award for Education Architecture, the Alan C Walker Award for Public Architecture, the Sustainable Architecture Award and the Colorbond Award for Steel Architecture.

All projects recognized by the jury with an award or named award will proceed to the National Architecture Awards to be announced on 5 November 2015 in Brisbane.
