Constructed in 1911 as the Philip Smith Training College, the Philip Smith Centre is an important example of ‘hygienic’ design, which valued light and ventilation. It references the Gothic character of the adjacent Domain House, while clearly being an Arts and Crafts building and has been maintained as a community education building since 1997. Lovell Chen with Hansen Yuncken are sympathetically restoring the building to its original glory, as a purpose-built learning and teaching facility for the University of Tasmania.
Tours of the Philip Smith Centre will be led by Bob McDougall, Project Architect and Associate at Lovell Chen and Alex Swift, Construction Project Manager at Hansen Yuncken.
Tours: Saturday 11 November 2023, 11 am, 12 pm
Duration: 30 Minutes
* On Saturday, 11 November, Open House Hobart ask everyone to observe a minute silence at 11 am for Remembrance Day.
