The winners of the Australian Institute of Architects’ 2016 Tasmanian Architecture Awards have been announced in Hobart.

This year’s awards demonstrate the important role that architecture plays in Tasmania’s booming tourism economy. Tourism-focused projects to win awards include Cumulus Studio’s striking Devil’s Corner cellar door and lookout at Bicheno; JAWS Architects’ Three Capes Track Cabins, which provide stunning views from their sensitive positioning atop the sea cliffs of the Tasman Peninsula; and Birrelli Art + Architecture + Design’s clever insertion of accommodation pods in the grounds of the heritage-listed Hatherley House in Launceston.

The President of the Tasmanian Chapter of the Australian Institute of Architects Brad Wheeler said this year’s entries also demonstrated the value architecture can bring to the community. “Tasmanian architects have a fantastic record designing award-winning buildings and spaces that benefit our island state’s communities, and this year is no exception. From student accommodation and facilities to sports pavilions and tourist attractions, architects have again helped to provide buildings and places that enrich all our lives and provide economic benefits for our state,” Wheeler said.

Projects that received a Named Award or Award are now in the running for the National Architecture Awards to be announced in November.
