Sydney’s Envirotecture, led by Sustainability Awards judge Dick Clarke and Andy Marlow has merged with Victoria’s Talina Edwards Architecture, to create what it calls a “partnership [that] will lead to greater impact and better outcomes.”

Say Directors Clarke and Marlow, “Talina is passionate about creating healthy, beautiful, functional, comfortable and sustainable architecture which combines building-science and biophilic-design. Biophilia is about our intuitive connection to nature, where the health and wellbeing of people and planet are inextricably linked.”

“This ethos extends to our purpose to ‘care for country’ and cultivate a living future for all,” they note.

Edwards has gained recognition as an industry leader, known for her sustainable architecture and as a passionate advocate for building a better future. She has received many awards recognising her meaningful contributions to sustainability with her architectural projects, and for her advocacy roles as Board Director at Australian Passive House Association, Coordinator of Australian Architects Declare, and for the ArchiTeam Advocacy committee.

“Talina previously built a successful sustainable-design practice on her own over the past decade, and she’s now very happy to merge with kinfolk here at Envirotecture, extending our tribe. She now leads the Victorian branch of Envirotecture, with her carbon-neutral studio based in Wadawurrung country (Ballarat),” says Clarke and Marlow,

“Envirotecture has always embodied the passion about what we create: architecture that honours and respects the natural environment. We share a strong desire for all people to live, work and play in buildings that are healthier for people and planet.”

“Over the past 25 years, Envirotecture has built an extraordinary legacy as sustainability advocates, completing hundreds of projects, helping educate the industry, and winning many awards. It is now time to look forward to the next 25 years, expanding our tribe,” they add.
