International Award for Tasmanian firm

Cumulus

Tasmanian-based architecture firm Cumulus Studio has been identified as an industry leader for architecture and design worldwide.

The jury for the 5th Annual Architizer A+ Awards have selected its work on Devil’s Corner as the recipient of the Commercial Mixed Use category award.

With more than three million monthly views, the A+Awards at Architizer.com, are the largest and fastest growing online awards program celebrating the year’s best architecture and design products.

Located on the scenic drive along Tasmania’s East Coast, the Devil’s Corner Cellar Door and Lookout sits within one of Tasmania’s largest vineyards.

Cumulus Studio co – director and architect Peter Walker said it was an exciting project for Tasmanian Tourism.

“This award recognises the role that innovative architecture can play in our tourism industry. We are extremely grateful to have had a great team to work with on the project and a client who was prepared to take a bit of a risk on something new”.

This project for Brown Brothers seeks to amplify the experience of this iconic view to create a new tourism experience on the East Coast of Tasmania.

“We really thought carefully about the placement of the shipping containers, to allow visitors to visually explore the landscape within and around the vineyard and to curate framed views towards The Hazards beyond.”

Cumulus Studio will be presented with their trophy at a Gala Cocktail event in New York on Thursday, May 11.
