Project Name: South Melbourne Primary School
Architect Name: Hayball
As designers, we combine both the detail of human occupation and the substance of civic ideas to produce enduring excellence, from conception to completion. Collaboration is ingrained in the culture of our practice and our rigorous approach to real issues results in significant efficiencies and compelling and engaging design.
Beyond our design output, Hayball is a passionate contributor to the wider design debate. The practice contributes to industry and government advisory panels and is actively engaged in academic research programs.
Highly awarded and widely published, our work reflects a belief in an architectural agenda that is socially responsive and materially responsible. We have the capacity to work on projects of every scale, in just about any location, and a passion for high quality, functional design that benefits end-users.
WORKING WITH US
For every project, we assemble a dedicated and experienced team from our offices in Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane. A flexible technology platform allows us to work across cities and across time zones, matching the appropriate skills and experience to each project. From strategic briefing and concept development through to design, documentation, and post-occupancy analysis, we design highly tailored solutions to fulfill the substantial expectations of owners, `, developers, and end-users.
With a compelling sense of responsibility to the communities we serve, Hayball has a strong project team with extensive experience in working with rating systems and schemes including Greenstar and NatHERS. We understand the design considerations, aspects, and impacts through the life of a project and have a proven track record to assist with guiding your project toward the targeted rating.
In addition to formal rating tools, Hayball takes a broader, more holistic approach to sustainability that considers not only the technical but also the social, experiential, and cultural aspects of sustainability from the outset.
From master planning, site selection, and community planning to individual buildings our fundamental approach is an integrated one that embeds rather than adds-on. This means that the key initiatives are part of the high-level conceptual planning and design approach as well as in the more technical aspects of the building façade, core, and systems. The collaborative working methodology within our teams and with other disciplines means that we consider individual aspects as well as the broader overall systems and incorporate this into an integrated design solution that addresses your needs, aspirations, functional requirements, and budget.
Our passion is creating sustainable communities, incorporating smart cities, learning places, workspaces, and living environments.
