1+2 ARCHITECTURE in association with JAWSARCHITECTS and HANSEN PARTNERSHIP landscape architects are pleased to have been selected as lead consultants for the Mount Wellington Cable Car project. Here is a brief video of the team beginning their exciting journey of exploration towards another world class tourist facility for Tasmania.
This Christmas we are celebrating the completion of our second beautifully constructed project for Annie and Peter. Peter's high quality workmanship and attention to fine detail is a triumph. The house is a quiet, peaceful oasis within a dense suburban context. It reconciles easterly views and northerly solar orientation around a sun drenched courtyard, maximising the potential of the variable Hobart climate.
1+2 have added a new internal bridge and external lift to one of Hobart's most striking residences completed by Brian Wyatt in 2002. Folded black steel floats through the space in contrast to the crisp white interior. Externally the folded steel of the new lift shaft contributes to a new composition.
Originally designed by 1+2 in 2009, this house has undergone
a complex transformation. The new owners thoughtfully saw an opportunity to re-invite
1+2 to respond to their design brief and ensure that the original house's
design integrity was maintained and enhanced.
The new work is a constrained response,
providing no more than necessary while engaging with the needs and wishes of
clients who have travelled far and wide, love the Australian bush, are avid
readers, music lovers and art collectors.
1+2 Architecture has won both the 2016, Royal Australian Institute of
Architects - Tasmanian Chapter, Commercial Architecture Award and Interior
Award for our latest commercial project Stornoway. 1+2 would like thank our
client Stornoway for their vision and trust, and congratulate them on a great
This is what the awards jury had to say:
[This project is a] successful example of adaptive re-use, a clever, simple and
considered solution that has met the brief for a workspace that promotes
integration, communication and innovation.”
'Materiality: Brick and block in contemporary Australian architecture'
This handsome new publication edited & curated by Ron Ringer and published by Dry Press Publishing Pty Ltd features Annie & Peter's House by 1+2 among a wonderful selection of projects by many of Australia's leading designers.
Special thanks to Beck Lauer from Austral Bricks for coordinating the evening launch.
1+2 are delighted to be published in the August/September issue of HOUSES! It's a great reflection on the work we've produced to date and a credit to the many clients who have provided us with interesting design briefs and sites, and the successful collaboration of myriad consultants and quality builders. Our special thanks to Katelin Butler, editor and Jude Abell, wordsmith.
1+2 Architecture has won the 2015 Royal Australian Institute of Architects, Tasmanian Chapter Award for Residential Architecture - Alterations and Additions for our latest residential creation: Art & Craft. Even more impressive than the length of the name of the award, is the fact that the same project also brought home the Award for Heritage Architecture. This is part of what the jury had to say:
"The extension is masterful, with beautifully considered detailing and bold and
generous spaces that pay respect, in a contemporary style, to the detail and
scale of the original house."
1+2 would like to thank the owners for the vision and aspirations which have led to the re-birth of this significant heritage property.
Macquarie Point master plan is a collaborative project
between John Wardle Architects, 1+2 Architecture and the Macquarie Point
Corporation project team. The master plan creates a template for future
development of this large and important urban precinct based on principles of
human scale, authentic understanding of history and place, realistic and
effective economic modelling, and social and environmental sustainability. The
master plan was publically launched in July 2015 and will be implemented as
land releases begin over coming months.
In a collaboration with CSIRO, inspired by the
crystalline forms and curious ancient heritage of the heavy metal byzmuth, this
competition proposal fuses science, performance and art through a
singular architectural gesture.
