Accolades for Tassie timber designs

Tasmania has been lauded for its stunning architectural designs featuring timber. The much-acclaimed Freycinet Lodge Coastal Pavilions, by Liminal Studio, took out the Excellence in Timber Products category at the recent Australian Timber Design Awards in Sydney. The pavilions were praised for a design that sits lightly amongst the bush setting and echo local rock formations with a curved glass and timber exterior incorporating charred red ironbark cladding. Mention was also made of the construction process. The pavilions were prefabricated in Hobart and delivered to the site in small modules that were wheelbarrowed from the Lodge’s carpark, thus ensuring minimal environmental damage. Other Tasmanian structures – MACq 01 Hotel by Circa Morris-Nunn Architects, and the Wukalina Walk huts by Taylor and Hinds Architects – also won awards at the 19th annual Australian Timber Design Awards.
