Tasmania is a place of elements. It is an ancient and precious island where the land, sea, and climate are as physical and tenacious as the people who live here.
This is a place best understood from within. A raw, delicate landscape that challenges us to explore, adapt, and try. To seek equilibrium between what is elemental, and what is human.
Finding the essential balance between people and place in this landscape requires knowledge and experience. It takes acts of true enquiry. Asking the right questions. Delving deeply enough to discover the right answers.
All architecture is inseparable from the environment in which it is created. But to make a real and positive contribution, architecture must be driven by the highest design values, and a deep understanding and love of this extraordinary place.
