Kurrewa House, Bellerive TAS

Completed: 2018


The design of this family home successfully negotiates the competing requirements of northerly solar access from behind and frontage to magnificent southerly views.


The house sits on top of Bellerive Hill, positioned to take in the expansive views of Kunanyi/ Mount Wellington and the River Derwent over the roofscape of Bellerive to the South below.

ALBUERA STREET SCHOOLHOUSE APARTMENTS

The Albuera Street Schoolhouse Apartments by JAWSArchitects have been featured in the Mercury. Link to article here:


The 1913 Albuera Street Schoolhouse was once the playground of Tasmania’s most famous export, Errol Flynn. The redevelopment of this wonderful heritage property gave JAWS a unique opportunity to peel away layers of unsympathetic additions and alterations that had hidden this building’s beautiful shell.


Our design features four contemporary apartments within the Schoolhouse’s original classrooms—incorporating the crisp, clean lines of the new with the stately beauty of the earlier structure. The minimalist, refined architecture of the new spaces contrasts with and highlights the heritage values of the original classrooms—creating a dramatic and beautiful effect in which the new pays homage to the old.

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL CHAMBERS

JAWSArchitects were commissioned to assist with the design of new joinery, furniture and lighting for Hobart’s historic Legislative Council Chamber which was finalised last week, before the sitting of the new Council.

The project brief was to create removable joinery items that provide technological support to the councillors in a way that is not intrusive of the 1856 Chamber and enabled all furniture to be removed when the Chamber is stripped out and rearranged for the official opening of the new Parliament.

To achieve this outcome JAWS collaborated with Southern Lighting and Andrew Sutherland Consulting Engineers to provide new lighting throughout the Chamber and customised pedestal units.

In addition to this, the original 1856 red velvet couches were reupholstered to provide a firmer more supportive ergonomic seating position.

CIVIC SQUARE DEVELOPMENT

Featured in today's Mercury, 'Spirit Place' is a dynamic waterfront development which aligns with Hobart’s vision of connecting nature, history, culture and business to each other in the heart of the city.


Retail, commercial and residential uses are carefully designed to complement each other. They provide a unique opportunity to take in Tasmania’s famous mix of heritage buildings and fine produce, offering glimpses of human interaction on this historic site over the generations.

We are excited to be a part of the preferred developer team.


For more information on the development visit the

JAWS Architects website.

CIVIC SQUARE DEVELOPMENT

Featured in the Mercury last week, JAWS proposal for the Civic Square site proposes a dynamic waterfront development which aligns with Hobart’s vision of connecting nature, history, culture and business in the heart of the city.


The proposal provides an opportunity to transform existing parking spaces into dynamic public spaces, with new and old shops and points of interest.


We are very interested to hear the thoughts of the people of Hobart during council’s community feedback process.

HUON ROAD RESIDENCE, HOBART

jaws architects huon road residence

Huon Road Residence, Hobart.


The design of this house was a close collaboration between architect and client, a talented builder who was up to the challenge of building his own home on a steep and narrow block with expansive views over Hobart.


From the outset, a pre-cast concrete sub-structure was chosen to anchor the house to its falling site, with a single level pavilion containing all the living spaces hovering above.

THE NANT TASTING EXPERIENCE

jaws architects jaws interiors nant distillery

Nestled in the centre of the renowned Nant Estate in Tasmania’s Central Highlands, Australia’s oldest water-powered mill still operates, re-purposed to assist in the production of premium whisky.

The tour begins at the wheel, with an industrial yet rich metal language leading people past the impressive equipment and up through the fabric

of the building.


Delicate insertions of intricate joinery offer a retail space to display whisky and other merchandise, literally putting Nant’s product on a pedestal.

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL CHAMBER

JAWS Interiors were engaged to provide new joinery items for the Legislative Council Chamber. These were fitted and finalised in July this year, before the sitting of the new Council.


The new joinery elements were to provide technological support to the councillors in a way that was not intrusive when the Chamber was viewed as a whole.


Each pedestal unit incorporates support for a laptop computer or ipad, a pull-out writing shelf, a light, microphone, power and data outlets and a USB charger socket.

The original 1865 red velvet couches were re-upholstered for ergonomic benefit as well as new lighting installed throughout the Chamber.

JAWS INTERIORS

Recently completed, The Bay Vue Apartment development in suburban Hobart comprises 14 apartments of varying size and orientation. The low-lying site fronts a major arterial road, and offers beautiful views of the River Derwent and kunanyi/Mt Wellington.


Our aim was to maximise the number of apartments on the site without compromising the amenity of adjacent residences. The wings of the complex radiate from a central core on the southern boundary to bathe the apartments with light, capture the views and maintain privacy between apartments. The stepped form of the new structure respects the scale of adjacent buildings and ensures that sunlight is not obstructed which gives each wing a unique character.


We selected materials that combine robustness and warmth, and bring a playfulness to the site. The irregular window placement continues this theme, with screens helping to soften the elevations and mitigate overlooking where required.

Some internal shots of the recently completed, Salvation Army, Glenorchy Core.


The new community facility used a biophilic design approach throughout the interior scheme to connect the internal spaces

with their surroundings.


This was achieved by blurring the distinction between the interior

fit-out and the public garden adjacent in an attempt to encourage

user engagement.
