About Stuart Tanner Architects

Stuart Tanner Architects is an award winning architectural practice based in Hobart, Tasmania.

Our project spectrum includes residential architecture, commercial, tourism projects and public infrastructure.

Project context, either urban, rural landscape or coastal margin, greatly inform our processes and we strive to reflect this relationship within our architecture. We take an exploratory approach to the spatial arrangement & materials of our buildings and we encourage our clients to engage with us on this journey. 

Sustainability is an integral facet of any design we undertake. The impact of a particular project is considered as a combination of factors, such as scale, relationship to site and broader context, in addition to its passive heating and cooling ability. Containment of built scale is one of the primary drivers that underpin our approach to sustainability.

Client communication is a criterion of the design process that we take seriously. We employ multi layered methods of communicating design and have considerable experience with the planning processes necessary to achieve successful outcomes at a planning application level. We aim to ensure our client is aware and comfortable at each step of a project’s navigation, from pre-design through to administration of the building contract.

Stuart Tanner Architects view contemporary architecture as a pivotal ingredient to a rich environmental culture and a vitally important aspect of a future sustainable society.
