Lisa Garner

Lisa has experience across architecture practice and research having worked for leading studios in Melbourne and Berlin. Alongside these roles Lisa has been involved in research concerning urban development patterns in Australian suburbs. These research projects include Greening the Greyfields, an urban planning pilot project aimed at delivering more socially and environmentally sustainable housing solutions for Melbourne’s middle ring. This research carried on from Lisa’s Thesis, conducted at UdK Berlin, that proposed an alternative housing protoype for Melbourne’s suburbs, which after winning first prize in an international sustainability competition was further funded by Aecom’s resilient cities program. In Berlin Lisa worked on projects spanning from small-scale alterations to medium density housing for practices including Raumlaborberlin, Robertneun and Helga Blocksdorf.

Andrej has worked on many public-focused projects in Melbourne, London and Berlin. Spanning across urban strategy / masterplanning, mixed-use buildings to public-realm transformations, his experience has regularly involved the creative re-use of existing buildings, infrastructure and landscape. Recently Andrej was involved with 5th Studio’s ambitious local-council-as-developer projects that are ongoing in London’s Lea Valley. In Melbourne he has gained substantial experience in the design and delivery of the highly awarded New Academic Street and Garden Building projects at RMIT University, by NMBW Architecture Studio in collaboration with a diverse team. Andrej received a M.Arch from that same university in 2012, and registered with the ARBV in 2016.
