Stuart Tanner is a Tasmanian architect—the founder of award-winning Hobart-based architectural studio Stuart Tanner Architects. Through his practice, Stuart approaches design by looking at scale and natural light, focusing on simple technology and exploring materials that enhance a building’s craftsmanship. Public space, landscape design and urban design play major roles in his studio’s residential, commercial and tourism projects—as does sustainability. One of Stuart’s acclaimed projects is Arm End House, the two-bedroom home of Violent Femmes bassist Brian Ritchie, situated on a windswept beachside hill outside Hobart. Stuart’s practice won an AIA Tasmanian Chapter Residential Architecture Award for the house in 2009—and it also featured on an episode of Channel Ten’s The Living Room.
