Graham Hunt has over 33 years’ experience as an architect, mostly in the area of environmentally sensitive design. He also has nearly 21 years’ experience as an accredited NatHERS assessor and has completed hundreds of thermal comfort and BASIX® assessments.
Not just a recent recruit to green building concepts, Graham designed and built his first passive solar home in 1983. His design focus is to create stimulating, healthy, resource-efficient living spaces that are holistically conceived whilst also being imbued with a sense of delight.
With a realistic and pragmatic approach, cost-effective design solutions evolve after detailed site evaluation in conjunction with deep consultation with clients. Being highly respected throughout the industry for his expertise in thermal comfort assessment, Graham specialises in helping home owners make their new or renovated homes perform optimally in summer and winter.
Graham is extensively involved in various industry committees. He currently represents the Australian Institute of Architects on the national NatHERS Technical Advisory Committee, NatHERS Stakeholders Consultative Committee, the Your Home Consultative Committee and the Australian Building Codes Board working group on residential energy efficiency and contributed to the NEPP Trajectory for Low Energy Homes. He is also a member of the BDAA/ABSA and an active member of the organising committee of the Sydney Central branch of RENEW.
Ella is a graduate of architecture with a passion for creating beautiful and functional spaces that serve the needs of the owners in every way.
Ella received her Bachelor and Masters degrees in Architecture at UNSW including extensive study of sustainable design principles. These principles now serve as an integral part of her design practice. Ella has designed and built residential projects over the last 15 years in and around greater Sydney, working for both herself and other design firms.
After running her own small business from 2016 which quickly grew as referrals from previous clients rolled in, she decided to combine forces with two architects and dhw was born.
Ella takes great joy in working closely with owners, builders and other consultants to make sure the experience of renovating or building is wonderful and as seamless as possible for all involved.
