Talina Edwards Architecture

Talina Edwards Architecture: elemental design are an award-winning small practice located in Ballarat and providing architectural services across Victoria.

Talina and her dedicated and passionate team embrace the scientific, rational and practical side of architecture and construction, as well as the more creative and intuitive approach to design. The practice employs a holistic and collaborative approach which ensures the best outcome for our clients in the designs of their projects.

When seeking an architect, Talina advises it is essential that you find an experienced professional that you feel comfortable with, who really listens to you, and that shares your values. The right architect will really get to understand who you are and how you live, and not only what you want for your future home, but also why you want it. A successful project starts with a trusting and collaborative client/architect relationship.

Elemental Design

What is 'elemental design'? We believe this is the holistic approach to architecture that results in the best outcome for your project. The benefits of combining our building-science expertise with our intuitive approach results in soul-enriching homes that not only feel special to be in, but are also comfortable, healthy, resilient and energy-efficient.

Certified Passivhaus Design

We believe in delivering the healthiest, highest-performing and lowest-energy buildings in the world, with proven performance thanks to rigorous building-science and the international passivhaus standard. Talina and Mia are both Certified Passivhaus Designers.

Biophilic Design

What is biophilic design? We all have deep desire to be connected to nature, and this experience can bring us joy and improved wellbeing. Our projects are designed to with this in mind - aiming to engage all of our senses, with consideration of all the elements, which leads to a more enriching experience of the architecture.
