Kurrewa House, Bellerive TAS
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.
Here is a sneak peek of our joint involvement with IDW Architecture & Interiors for a new and exciting Modernisation project at Macquarie Island.
Our team were fortunate enough to visit and experience this sub-Antarctic island over the last couple of weeks, returning with gratitude and an incredible appreciation of place.
Watch this space, more exciting stuff to come!
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.
