We are architects and interior designers specializing in retail, leisure, workplace and residential projects. We place equal importance on both the architectural and interior considerations to ensure each project speaks with one voice, be it large scale branded retail or residential.

Our portfolio is broad and varied with projects from across the globe. We bring our architectural experience and design flair to bear on each project focusing on the individual client requirements and aspirations. All projects receive the full and dedicated attention they deserve to achieve the best possible outcome.
At the core of the practice is our specialist experience in retail projects be they airport commercialisation projects, shopping centres or boutiques. We work with the client to develop solutions which communicate the brand personality or public face of the project. In this way each project is different and requires an approach which starts with an understanding of the customer and context.

Evolving from a previous collaboration of Herbert and Duncalf, HAT continues to offer contemporary and brand focussed design grounded on professional delivery.
