Stronger Together 


From December 2022 Talina Edwards Architecture and Envirotecture have become one! We are very happy to announce our next chapter uniting our teams to be stronger together. We believe that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and the synergy created by this partnership will lead to greater impact and better outcomes.

We will keep the name ‘Envirotecture’ because this embodies what we are passionate about creating: architecture that honours and respects the natural environment. We share a strong desire for all people to live, work and play in buildings that are healthier for people and planet.

PLEASE NOTE: There is no change in our VIC team based in Ballarat - we are all still doing our jobs as usual - just with an even bigger brains trust and experience pool to help us do it even better! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Talina at or our VIC studio phone 0491 241 181.

Please come and find us at our ENVIROTECTURE website!
