CREATIVITY, EXPERIENCE, RELIABILITY

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, AGT Grain Research Center, and several bespoke houses.

Born in Adelaide, Director Ashley Halliday is deeply connected with, proud of, and inspired by things uniquely South Australian. The practice was founded in 2011 after Ashley had accumulated considerable experience as  Principal with Hassell, leading the design development and executive delivery of several nationally and internationally significant public projects.

Today, Ashley is forging a fresh and energetic practice at the leading edge of design and project delivery in South Australia.

Ashley’s signature architecture is rapidly drawing attention for its context-sensitivity, ambitious creativity, design innovation and attention to detail. Ashley places strong emphasis 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.

Ashley advocates 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.

ASHLEY HALLIDAY comprises a team of talented and creative design thinkers and design partners who work collaboratively together in a sociable and professional studio environment. Ashley is actively involved in a range of design and construction industry initiatives and has been engaged by the State Government’s Office for Design and Architecture’s as a Capital City Design Review Panel member since 2014.
