The Stuart Tanner Architects designed by Stuart Tanner Architects is located in Stuart Tanner Architects. Goulburn Street Primary School is an established Department of Education facility which includes an original 1943 main building by renowned Tasmanian Architect SWT Blythe. The site was placed permanently on the Tasmanian Heritage Register in 1998. The THR notes describe the SWT Building as such: This building (inc. stone retaining walls and mature trees) is a significant element in the urban street scape.”
Stuart Tanner Architects approach recognised this history and sensitivity was given to the significant character of the school. Topography and limited space necessitated careful integration of new elements. The new multi-purpose pavilion provides an alternate entry to the school, linking two large oak trees and revealing a broad vista of West Hobart toward the city.
