2017 Tasmanian Architecture Awards

The winners of the Australian Institute of Architects’ 2017 Tasmanian Architecture Awards have been announced at a ceremony at St David’s Cathedral in Hobart.

This year’s awards were notable for the prominence of emerging practices. Room 11 was awarded a number of prizes, including Residential and Commercial Architecture Awards and the Barry McNeill Award for Sustainable Architecture.

Taylor and Hinds won the Esmond Dormey Award for Residential Architecture for Cross House at Franklin and the Edith Emery Award for Residential Architecture (Alterations and Additions) for Longview Ave. Garden Room.

John Wardle Architects won the top awards in the Heritage and Interior Architecture categories with its restoration of Captain Kelly’s Cottage.

Jury chair Genevieve Lilley said, “Tasmanian architects, and their clients, are leaders in resourcefulness and authenticity – forever fashioning big ideas into pivotal buildings with modest budgets, and this is especially evident in the common-sense-craft presented at this year’s awards.”

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