Aptly named the “Jewell of Tasmania”, Saffire Freycinet, located in Coles Bay on the east coast of Tasmania, is a luxury boutique hotel resort.
Designed by renowned local Tasmanian architects, Morris Nunn and Associates (now Circa Architecture), the development consists of 20 suites and a unique main building. WGE provide the mechanical, electrical, hydraulics, fire protection and sustainability services on the project.
Facing south over Great Oyster Bay, the buildings had their challenges in meeting sustainability aspirations, yet maintaining curtain glazing to take full advantage of the views. The distinctive architecture also created several challenges for the engineering design and generated some innovative and creative solutions.
The development was opened by the Tasmanian Premier, David Bartlett and has been fortunate to receive some fantastic media coverage and win numerous awards.
