A heartfelt congratulations to Hunter Crisp from our Adelaide Studio, as well as Karin Ke, Hannah Clifton, and Jacky Chen from our Sydney Studio. We extend our best wishes for continued success on this remarkable journey!
Hunter values the opportunity to shape the world through architecture. He sees the profession as a chance to create art that people can live, work, and learn in, using creativity, thoughtfulness, coordination, and dedication. The positive feedback from clients, acknowledging the profound impact of his work on communities, is a rewarding aspect that fuels his passion. Hunter believes architects have the power to leave lasting and meaningful impacts, aiming to create spaces that spark joy and contribute positively to the built environment.
Hannah – an interior and spatial designer, architecture graduate, and educator, is committed to acknowledging and addressing the impact of living and working on stolen land. With a deep sense of responsibility to the future and the planet, she believes in the transformative power of design to influence and change the way we live, interact with each other, and engage with our spaces and environment.
Karin has dedicated her career to the public sector, concentrating on conceptual design and executed projects. Her portfolio includes educational and cultural landmarks, as well as anchor projects, such as strategic curatorial business cases, tertiary public institutions, adaptive reuse and urban regeneration endeavours. Karin adopts a research-based humanist approach, providing a foundation for her visionary and versatile design philosophy, allowing her architectural expertise to extend to scales and domains beyond traditional boundaries.
Jacky is passionate about architecture and sees it as an opportunity to express creativity, bring ideas to life and make positive contributions to the city. Additionally, Jacky had the privilege of tutoring the Master of Architecture final design studio at the University of New South Wales, where he was continually inspired by the students and their innovative ideas. The prospect of seeing these ideas come to life in the future excites him.
