NEWS: Two projects shortlisted at IDEA 2018

The shortlist for the Interior Design Excellence Awards – IDEA 2018 has been announced, and we are pleased to share that two projects have been shortlisted in the Public category:

Salamanca Building, Parliament Square in Hobart, Tasmania and Bunjil Place in Narre Warren, Victoria

These two projects represent the variety of scope and approach of our practice, and the successful collaboration between fjmt’s disciplines in Sydney and Melbourne offices.

Salamanca Building represents the first stage of the masterplanned redevelopment for the Tasmanian State Government. The project opens new committee rooms, atrium and public spaces and embodies collaborative design with local craftspeople and artisans representing Tasmania’s rich design traditions.

Bunjil Place exemplifies a new form of hybrid community building: a library, performance theatre, studio, exhibition space, gallery, café and workplace. Flexible and experimental, it is a community service centre and place of collaboration that overlaps and interconnects through fluid non-hierarchical forms that unify the complex.
