Melina is a passionate architect and meticulous in her approach to understanding the project brief and resolving design challenges. Melina’s philosophy balances considered spatial planning with innovative ideas whilst always taking into account the design aesthetics, budget and how the building will ultimately be experienced.
She strongly believes that architects play an important role beyond just designing pretty buildings, and that considered architecture contributes to a better quality of life and a sustainable future. Melina brings a diverse knowledge and expertise to ABA, with 15 years experience in project management and architectural roles in various small to large architecture practices and not-for-profit companies in Australia and oversees.
Melina joined ABA in 2017 and then relocated to Melbourne in 2018 with her young family to lead the Melbourne Studio.
