Sandcastles s1 - Episode 2
The Australian Institute of Architects voted Trial Bay House in Tasmania the best in the country by awarding it the 2010 Robin Boyd prize. Owned by a noted film and television director whose brief to local Hobart firm HBV (Heffernan Button Voss) was to modify a series of barn like structures and create extra living area. The response was to rearrange the floor plan but ignore current trends of open plan living. This episode is a master class in how to subtly resurrect an old house. The masterstroke is the creation of a separate living room with views that are framed for cinematic effect.
