An architectural approach defined by context-sensitivity, ambitious creativity, design innovation and attention to detail.

ASHLEY HALLIDAY is an acclaimed contemporary architecture and interior design practice rapidly drawing attention for its high profile and award winning  work. Current projects include the new Kangaroo Island Air Terminal, Plant 4 Bowden Community Hub, AGT Grain Research Centre, and several bespoke houses.

Led by Creative Director Ashley Halliday, the practice is deeply connected with, proud of, and inspired by things uniquely Australian. Ashley is a strong advocate for a holistic approach to design, an approach that goes beyond the obvious design problem, considering a broader spectrum of design considerations alongside commerciality including aesthetics, sustainability, culture and community. Through this approach his practice is exploring architecture’s potency in creating unique cultural landscapes and memory.

With a passionate design approach and excellent project delivery credentials, ASHLEY HALLIDAY’s signature architecture demonstrates context-sensitivity, ambitious creativity, design innovation and attention to detail. Strong emphasis is placed on the discipline of planning and the translation of complex forms and spatial programs into simplified forms. Modernistic design principles and poetics of light, space, form, and movement are underpinned by a creative, practical, and thoughtfully-considered approach to construction detailing. Clients value the practice’s strong track record in designing unique and brilliantly simple buildings and interiors that achieve all aspects of the core brief – cost, time, quality and function – whist delivering something different.
