We are a Ballarat-based Architecture and Landscape Design Studio passionate about creating healthy, beautiful, functional, comfortable and sustainable architecture. The practice has a passion for design that improves people’s lives – for community, residential and commercial clients. Talina strongly believes that high quality design of our built environment has many positive impacts for people and the planet.

Talina established her Architectural Studio in 2013 after more than a decade of working as a registered architect with Melbourne practices who excelled in sustainable architecture. Talina and her colleague Mia recently completed their ‘Certified Passive House Designer’ training, which is an international standard to deliver the healthiest, highest-performing and lowest-energy buildings in the world. The standard is heavily based in building-physics for proven performance. Talina embraces this scientific, rational and practical side of architecture, as well as the more creative and intuitive approach to design. She employs a holistic and collaborative approach that is responsive to the whole picture, whilst including careful consideration of all the small, important details. She is very interested in how the principles of biophilic design can be applied to architectural projects to improve our wellbeing by connecting to nature. Talina recently attended the ‘Living Future Institute’ 2018 symposium and is committed to the ideology, which aims to redirect our future towards a society that is socially just, culturally rich and ecologically restorative.

But enough about us, what are our happy clients saying?

“Since this is the first time we have used an Architect, we asked friends who had, and were very nervous as no one had been very happy with the creativity and understanding of their needs, style, etc. Talina has understood us from day one and has delivered concepts, floor plan layouts, renderings, material selections, etc. all to our liking and vision. To achieve this, Talina took the time to listen and understand us rather than delivering something she wanted, maybe to simply add to a portfolio.”  – Matthew Davis & Brad Atkins
