A city that is known for its stunning scenery and rugged landscape. Hobart is fascinating city that is defined by a community spirit and a love for the great outdoors.
Unsurprisingly many Hobart homes offer lots of natural light and boast floor to ceiling windows that frame a spectacular view. Hobart has a style of architecture that is sensitive to the surrounding landscape. As such, many of this city's homes are designed to sit harmoniously within their setting as if to touch the earth gently.
This inspiring approach to design has been brought about by Hobart's innovative architects who are committed to creating homes that are sustainable, functional and innately beautiful. Below we bring you a selection of Hobart's best architects who inspired us by their immense passion and extreme talent.
