About the project
‘The Salamanca building is the first stage of Hobart’s Parliament Square redevelopment for the Tasmanian Government. It provides a new workplace for government agencies, Department of Premier & Cabinet, public parliamentary committee rooms and a new connection to the historic Parliament House, respecting and reinforcing its importance.

The interiors concept explores the expression of a contemporary Tasmanian Government building and sets out to create an inclusive sense of identity for staff and visitors. The organic and welcoming design language incorporates references to the enduring beauty of the Tasmanian landscape.

Working with local furniture designers and joiners provided an opportunity to forge relationships with Tasmanian craftspeople, supporting local industry and representing local skill through bespoke design and furniture. A key objective for this significant government tenancy was to achieve a 5 Green Star rating to demonstrate environmental stewardship and to provide a benchmark for sustainable workplaces in the state.’
