What stood out in the architecture portfolio, was a rememberance monument in Melbourne. Which has taken 15 years to deliver, and the “very small, neglected barn” in Hobart que was converted into a family home. Called #thebarnTAS, the renovation both won the main prize for a small project and a heritage award.

“The historic structure has been lovingly retained – even its original shingles have been scrupulously cleaned and now form a ceiling to the upper mezzanine bedroom,” said a statement from the jury. “This is an excellent example of how the limits and challenges of heritage and conservation can encourage inventive solutions.”
