Bay Vue Apartments, Sandy Bay.
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.

Legislative Council Chambers, Completed July 2019.
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.
