LIGHT COMMERCIAL PROJECT
In 2008 Kerry Vince Builders won the Light Commercial Project award at the HIA / CSR Housing Awards for the University of Tasmania Accommodation Hostel.
Constructed on the site of a demolished, dilapidated weatherboard cottage, this purpose-built 34 bed University accommodation was designed to remain in keeping with the original building and neighbouring houses.
The quaint single storey frontage belies the large modern double storey accommodation block behind it with carparking beneath.
The structure is constructed with shadow clad and block work. Perforated metal screens to all windows provide privacy while allowing ample natural light to all rooms.
