Hinds’s work is characterised by an abiding awareness of Tasmania’s architectural traditions – and seeks to foster deep social and environmental connections, through a high level of quality in architectural ideation and execution.
Hinds says that he considers buildings as an extension of the landscape condition, and seeks conceptual rigour in resolving ideas from poetic abstraction toward the reality of everyday needs.
Since establishment, the practice, he has twice received the Tasmanian Chapter’s Esmond Dorney Award for Residential Architecture – Houses (New) (2015 & 2017), and the 2017 Edith Emery Award for Residential Architecture Houses (Alterations and Additions), as well as a number of other national industry awards.
Since graduating in 2006, Hinds has maintained a teaching and lecturing presence within the Masters of Architecture program. In conjunction with practice, he has held associate lecturer and honorary research positions at the School of Architecture and Design at UTAS, and in 2017, he was an external examiner for the Masters of Architecture Program.
Hinds has also taught as a guest lecturer at Bond University (2016), and at the L’Ecole d’Architecture de l’Université Internationale de Rabat, in Morocco (2012).
