Jury’s Comment: The Jarrah Block House updates an existing dwelling to suit the lifestyle of the inhabitants. It responds to this familiar brief with one built element that unites the form and function of the space. Many of the activities are brought together in one room. This multi-functional outcome is achieved by inserting one large piece of timber furniture into the space, unifying activities and connecting it to the upper level via a stair. This is a stage for eating, cooking, studying and playing. This hard-working object is made from Jarrah – chosen to match the client’s timber dining table and its ability to age naturally and authentically. The design approach is a singular and highly disciplined celebration of daily life.


We are pleased to share this award with our client and also with our builder Think Projects.
