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.

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.

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.
