Award-winning landscape architects join Archipelago

Archipelago enhances our city-making, city-shaping, and city-shaking offer with a national award-winning landscape architecture team.

Dominic Powell, Julie Hardie and Phil Mackenzie have joined Archipelago, bringing 40 years of combined expertise to the practice; with industry leading skills in transit infrastructure, university and hospital campus design, sporting infrastructure, foreshore, streetscape, public realm and mixed use precinct design.

Recent years have seen this team working with major contractors, engineers, authorities, councils and institutions, providing a full end to end service as demonstrated in National and State award-winning projects Northern Busway, Woolgoolga to Ballina Pacific Highway Upgrade, and the University of Queensland Chancellors Place.

Widely recognised as a big-picture design practice that punches above its weight, Archipelago Director Peter Edwards sees the addition and integration of landscape architecture and infrastructure urban design expertise as a key enhancement to Archipelago’s industry leading urban design and architecture capability.

‘Dominic, Julie and Phil are passionate professionals committed to great design and expert delivery. They are a terrific addition to our studio and make even more compelling our award winning offer in urban design, integrated architecture, and infrastructure design.’
Peter Edwards, Director

The Archipelago team is now exceptionally well placed to deliver projects of all scales, in all sectors, and in every location. From the first fat pen sketches through to opening day, we always commit active senior professional leadership to every project, embedding our design teams for the full project life cycle.

‘Julie, Phil and I are delighted to be working within a great team in a young, independent design studio that has achieved so much for its clients and the community in such a short time in existence. Peter, Brendan and the team are not only an outstandingly talented team of designers, they are a rare group of passionate, intelligent people who know how to have a good time with clients and consultants, deliver exceptional design through great client service, and enjoy the occasional robust debate to ensure only the highest and best design outcomes are achieved.’
