Melbourne's First At Home With the Architect Takes Place


The Australian Architecture Association is excited to announce that the very first AAA Melbourne open house series 'At Home With the Achitect' will be taking place this month on Sunday 23 November.

November is the month for Victorian architecture and design enthusiasts to visit a home designed by Clare Cousins Architects. Meet the architect and learn all about how the residence was conceived and built.

Clare Cousins founded her Melbourne practice, Clare Cousins Architects (CCA), in 2005 and has since established a significant body of work that has won a number of industry awards and been widely published. Clare was awarded the AIA National Emerging Architect of 2013, an acknowledgement of her proactive industry involvement, as well as recognition of her architectural contribution.


At CCA, Clare leads a youthful and energetic design team in which ideas are debated and developed, resulting in innovative yet pragmatic design outcomes. The studio undertakes projects ranging from bespoke houses to multi-residential housing, retail design, mixed-use developments and commercial master-planning. Each project evolves from a considered response to site, context, program, affordability and sustainability.

Maintaining a balanced professional profile, Clare is actively involved in the broader design community as a mentor, educator, public speaker, committee member and industry representative. She has also been proactive in providing substantial pro-bono services in response to the Victorian Black Saturday bushfires.
