Melbourne Studio

Lisa Jennings

Associate Principal, Melbourne Studio Chair

The Melbourne studio is located on the traditional land of the Boon Wurrung and Woiwurrung (Wurundjeri) peoples of the Kulin Nation.

 

Located in the St James building in Melbourne’s CBD, the Melbourne studio is in a central position to host our clients, collaborators and teams. Inspired by Ferran Adria’s cookbook, ‘The Family Meal’ and the simple notion of coming together to share an experience, the heart of the Melbourne studio is an open auditorium – a space to gather, host events and lectures, share ideas and collaborate. 

The Melbourne studio gathers diversity of thought, inspiration and experience from across all its project teams to create culturally inclusive, community considered, people centric design. 

The Melbourne studio holds expertise in multiple sectors across the disciplines of architecture, consulting, interior design and master planning.

Our key sectors include, aviation, education, residential, hotel, civic and convention, commercial, workplace, adaptive reuse and mixed-use precincts. We are skilled at gathering our diverse sector knowledge to create distinctive project arrangements which mix use and create authentic places focused on the user experience.

Our design approach creates strong project narratives that aid navigation through planning approvals, generate connection to market, strengthen sales and create legacy projects.

We collaborate with our clients to create some of the city’s and the region’s largest and most impactful projects with award winning results.
