Architect + Interior Designer: Hearth Studio (2019)
Designed as a unique Hobart getaway, Slow Beam is an architectural ‘jewel-box’ which cleverly merges the rugged bush setting with sophisticated modern design. This luxurious AirBnB celebrates Australian artists, makers and designers.
The design actively responds to the site by incorporating two linked pavilions that take advantage of an existing cutting from a previous owner’s abandoned earthworks. The northern facing rear of the house looks directly onto the existing rock cutting and steeply sloping meadow above, while views to the south take in the rooftops of Hobart and timtumili minanya/the River Derwent.
The interiors were an opportunity to play with perspective, form, and colour. Black stained ply interiors are balanced beautifully with opulent and joyously colourful custom carpet by Melbourne-based artist Esther Stewart, as well as artworks and designs by the likes of Grant Featherston, Anna Varendorff, Ebony Truscott, Kirsten Perry and Fred Ganim.
We are super excited about this open house.
Open: Saturday 11 November 2023, 10 am – 1 pm
Note: This house is a general open; however, you must register via the booking link to receive the location details. This is a shoe-free household.
* On Saturday, 11 November, Open House Hobart ask everyone to observe a minute silence at 11 am for Remembrance Day.
