About this item


JWA would like to offer the opportunity to purchase a concept for a unique JWA designed ‘Retreat’. 'The Retreat' is a design evolution of the Shearers Quarters on Bruny island. While sharing many characteristics such as the elegant geometry of the initial design, it is a small-scale, intimate structure that could be well suited to a country or beach house block of land. JWA offer the successful bidder a license to the rights to the design for their block of land.    

The concept design package will include the following:

  • printed booklet with conceptual imagery for the dwelling
  • floor plan 
  • model 
  • presentation box
  • two consultations with the JWA team 


A) The 'Retreat' design is a Concept design only. The entire proceeds from the sale will be donated in good faith to the bushfire cause nominated by JWA. 

B) The 'Retreat' has not been designed for a specific client, site, or soil conditions. It will require further design and documentation work should the buyer wish to construct a dwelling from the concept. 

C) The 'Retreat' has received no input from other consultants such as engineers, planning consultant, building surveyor, and has no bushfire rating. Any further design with a view to construct a dwelling would require other consultant input.  

D) The 'Retreat' has no Planning Permit or Building Permit in place, both which may be required prior to commencing construction. 

E) In order to construct the 'Retreat', further design and documentation stages would need to be carried out. These services are not included in the sale of the Concept. 

F) JWA retains the intellectual property rights in the 'Retreat' concept, however licenses the purchaser to use the concept for the purposes of designing and constructing the 'Retreat' on a one-off basis.
