Over the weekend John invited us to his place. We wondered if there might be wine and cheese, but found what had started as a modest renovation and refurbishment has become a total reconfiguration and opportunity for testing and experimentation at every turn. Plenty of mental note taking was taking place.⁠ 📷 @interiorlux & @ab.pdf

A critical stage of the Northern Transformation Project was unveiled today with the launch of the University of Tasmania Inveresk Precinct Plan. For Principals John Wardle and Jane Williams, the history of the site has provided a powerful source of inspiration, as has the University’s vision to create a campus that revitalises Launceston and its region. The design developed in partnership with @1plus2architecture has been driven by a sense of discovery and the excitement of remapping a historically significant part of the city to create an utterly contemporary learning environment.

900 Ann St wins the Karl Langer Award for Urban Design at the Queensland AIA Chapter Awards!⠀ The jury described the project as delivering a simple yet considered urban design response to the city fabric that transforms a neglected collection of buildings into a revitalised precinct. 900 Ann St skilfully mediates between old and new, offering a contemporary gesture to the scale, form and materiality of the heritage Church buildings. 📷@christopherfrederickjones
