Replete with devastating panoramas, D’Entrecasteaux House, on Bruny Island finds itself nonetheless exposed. Winds buffet the angled terrain and so we devised a high walled courtyard to protect the inner workings of this home. The house employs an inflected non-orthogonal plan where massive distorted trapezoidal stone walls encompass living spaces which are enriched by the resultant spatial complexity. A black interior has been created which provides relief from the blisteringly bright Tasmanian light. D’Entrecasteaux House has a simple pallet, dark within and a pale stone exterior. Face-fixed bespoke glazing focuses attention upon very specific elements within the overwhelming landscape continuum.
Little Big House can be found within the pages of a new book by Anna Johnson and Richard Black. Published by Thames and Hudson ‘Living in the Landscape’ considers extraordinary rural houses in Australia and New Zealand. Showcasing the work of a number of architectural luminaries we are delighted to find ourselves featured. For more go to:
Lighthouse, GASP! and Little Big House have been included in the prestigious Divisare Atlas of Architecture. Showcasing excellent architecture from around the globe we are most pleased to be selected for inclusion.
We are delighted to be working with MONA on our latest urban project: Heavy Metals Lab.
Won by invitational competition, this project involves the construction of a large submerged ring which moves hydraulically with the tide. Part Art, part spectacle and part scientific instrument the project offers a new mechanism for people to interact with and understand the Derwent River which has a difficult history. Heavy Metals were routinely dumped until relatively recently. This has had people outraged for some time. MONA has made a commitment to doing something about it. Room11 Architects have been commissioned to create submerged architecture which brings the state of the Derwent to collective attention. Haptic experience and technical data will be deployed in the battle for hearts and minds – raising awareness regarding an important environmental initiative. Prototyping underway now.

As thrilling as travel may be, there’s nothing like returning to the familiar, private comfort of one’s own home. But what if you could enjoy the beauty of an exotic locale without ever leaving your living room? One aging husband and wife in Port Arthur, Tasmania, hold that rare privilege. Their recently constructed home, designed by Room 11 Architects, commands jaw-dropping views of rugged Tasman Island and the peaceful Southern Ocean beyond. “The clients were interested in consolidating the considerable potential of the site, specifically its spectacular scenery,” architect Nathan Crump says. The firm achieved this by installing floor-to-ceiling windows across the entire eastern length of the dwelling, offering a dreamy panorama of the Australian coast. The Lookout House, as the architect dubbed it, gives a whole new meaning to armchair travel.

Presented by DIS-cour.se, this discussion will look at the themes prevalent in the film Cathedrals of Culture—a screening collaboration between ACMI and MPavilion in November—and will deliberate on the narrative that is created by our interaction with spaces we know all too well. The twentieth-century German philosopher Walter Benjamin described the functioning of architecture as something that is consummated by “the collectivity in a state of distraction”, and this panel—of multidisciplinary artist Callum Morton, architects Aaron Roberts and Kristin Green, and visual artist Marnie Edmiston—will focus on how the perception of our environment is often only a thin veil of the real space. In places we call ‘home’, our perception is regularly taken over by habit, and the recognition of the depth and importance of such environments is all too often considerably diminished.

AARON ROBERTS (ROOM 11) / SHAUN CARTER (CARTER WILLIAMSON ARCHITECTS)
In choosing a site, do you choose to celebrate, reject or blend in to its surrounds? In the beautiful yet harsh environment of natural and urban Australia this choice could dictate the survival of your building. Are we at the mercy of our site? Our buildings are not singular units but members of a broader typology and vernacular and will be judged as such.
Shaun Carter is based in Summer Hill and approaches the talk from an urban background, whilst Melbourne and Hobart based Aaron Roberts is renowned for works based in natural environments.
Together they will explore the relationship between their projects and the landscapes they have evolved from, and how reacting to urban and natural Australian sites has produced distinctively Australian architecture.
The Australian Institute of Architects and bespoke careers are proud to present the 2014 Spring/Summer Tuesdays@Tusculum series. These season of talks has been produced in two series by separate curators.
CURATOR: Lewis Wisden
Lewis is a recent graduate from the University of Newcastle. His group of talks
will explore the question: What does Australian architecture have to offer?
This question will prompt a series of conversations that explore the
current and developing values and trends in Australian architecture
within the context of the international architectural movement.
Lewis’ program of talks will run on the second Tuesday of the month from
September to November, and are proudly sponsored by Bespoke Careers.
All talks will be held at Tusculum – 3 Manning Street, Potts Point, NSW 2011 unless otherwise noted with a 6pm for a 6.30pm start. Talks include 2 informal CPD points.
Institute member FREE, non-member $10, student non-member $5.

Aaron Roberts presents a discussion on the experiential qualities of architecture, its relationship to place and the underlying methodologies, intentions and outcomes of selected projects by Room11.
Aaron Roberts is a founding Director of Room11 Architects. Room11 deliver projects across a wide range of typologies and scale, with a focus on architecture as means to manipulate the experience and perception of its inhabitants and their relationship to place.
Room 11 recently received critical acclaim for its two GASP (Glenorchy Art and Sculpture Park) pavilions, on the Derwent estuary in Hobart. The practice seeks an architecture that responds to the scale of surrounding landforms, using – in this case – colour and form as a vehicle for the re-evaluation and re-appreciation of place.
