This project was also shortlisted in the 2017 Houses Awards, and a Finalist in the 2017 Victorian Premier’s Design Awards.</p> <p>Working under leading design architect’s both in Australia and abroad developed Amy’s passion for detail and high design standards. This background has shaped Topology Studio as a highly creative, design driven practice, with robust, rigorous design process.</p> <p>Amy is strongly influenced by the unique attributes of each site, seeking out the qualities that contribute to a sense of place. In practice she draws on a passionate interest in art and the first hand experience of travel to ensure richness in thinking and promote meaningful exchange. Having a young family has provided new insight in designing for children in both the residential and public spheres. </p> <p>Amy believes in architecture which is: responsive to the context and character of a site / responsive to the environment / enriched by a communicative, creative and analytical process / bold, sensitive and innovative / developed through a collaborative approach.</p>
