Goulburn Street Housing Forms Part of National Architecture Awards Shortlist

12 Sept 2022

Goulburn Street Housing is one of eight projects shortlisted for the 2022 National Architecture Awards' Multiple Housing category.

Announced today by Australian Institute of Architects, the shortlist comprises 85 entries across 14 categories, including public architecture, residential, urban design, and heritage, among others.

According to National Awards jury chair Tony Giannone, the shortlisted projects “demonstrated the high calibre of Australia’s architects and displayed the unique connection of the built environment to its landscape”.

Located in a heritage precinct on the edge of Hobart’s city centre, Goulburn Street Housing is a group of 25 social housing apartments built to address the lack of accommodation for the elderly and disabled in the city.

The design is centred on the concept of a micro village and formulated around the idea of making social housing a seamlessly integrated part of the built landscape. Rather than a dense and dominant urban complex, Goulburn Street Housing’s cluster of forms are respectful to the history, textures, and rhythm of the neighbourhood.

We’re extremely happy to have Goulburn Street Housing shortlisted alongside so many other incredible projects from around Australia. Congratulations to all the other studios!

Winners for the National Architecture Awards will be announced on November 3.
