THE PAST & THE PRESENT.

This project involved the relocation of Tasmania's Training Authority, Skills Tasmania, into the heritage-listed Hobart Technical College designed by SWT Blythe between 1938 and 1954. Spanning across two wings of the College complex, the fit-out pays homage to the original use of the buildings, as an educational facility, referencing the main Tasmanian industries of the time (boatbuilding, shipping, apple growing, pottery, furniture making, weaving and tourism) through details, materials and colours.
