When he’s not playing in, on, or under the Tasmanian water you’ll find Nick Terry working away at award-winning JAWSARCHITECTS.
Lonely Planet describes Tasmania’s extraordinary Three Capes Track as one of the world’s hottest new experiences. For visitors, one of the most memorable parts of this compelling walking experience is staying overnight in the three huts located along the track, conceived by JAWSARCHITECTS.
Nick Terry is one of the young architects who works for JAWSARCHITECTS and whose sensitive design solutions have enhanced some of Tasmania’s most extraordinary landscapes and historically significant places.
Nick joined JAWSARCHITECTS in 2015, having spent a decade gaining post graduate experience in architecture and property development. The firm are known for their considered, sustainable architectural design.
Some people live in Tasmania for work-life balance, drawn by the myriad of recreational opportunities, alongside manageable work hours and a quick commute. For Nick the island state provides the balance he’s been looking for. He hits the coast when the waves are right and also enjoys many of the state’s finest weekend fishing spots.
“For me Tasmania offers a means of escape. There are endless opportunities to explore its untouched natural beauty on land, in the water and up in the air. You can take a walk in a national park, swim in the ocean and climb a mountain all in one day. It’s for these reasons that Tasmania has the perfect work-life balance and I also have a job that I love. Tassie is for everyone,” says Nick.
Talk to Nick about Tasmania and his passion is palpable. He also manages to combine Tasmania’s natural beauty with built beauty, working hard in the Mako Modular Homes department, a division of JAWSARCHITECTS which delivers architecturally designed, ecologically sustainable houses at an affordable price.
As a qualified property consultant Nick also has a wealth of experience in marketing, sales and design. Being dynamic is a plus in any business, and JAWS welcomes Nick’s broad contribution as a young architect.
“With the success of our Three Capes Track cabins winning a national award, our architectural practice has embraced the substantial benefits of off-site fabrication for remote areas, and are developing some unique accommodation projects to insert in the landscape,” says Nick.
“We are working closely with industry professionals on the design and construction systems, from the ground up. The off-site fabrication minimises site disturbance and reduces the construction cost and time frames whilst ensuring the highest quality finish. It’s very exciting and business is booming.”
