Emerald Hill Library
Paul Morgan Architects has emerged as one of Australia's most innovative architectural practices. The practice specialises in educational design for universities and technical colleges and has also completed residential and urban design, master planning, commercial, government and library projects in Melbourne, regional Victoria and Asia.
PMA’s design-led team takes a strategic and expressive approach, creating innovative projects for ambitious clients. Working with the client from inception to completion, Paul’s personal involvement in each project ensures results that meet the client's vision, whilst amplifying the brief's spatial and expressive potential.
Our design processes result in space types such as ecology performance envelopes, spatial-acoustic environments and blended learning spaces that both embrace and inspire end users. PMA offers the skills to synthesise architectural design with environmental and sustainable design and through consultation with environmental engineers. These principles are integrated from the project beginning to end.
PMA has been published extensively in Australia and abroad. In 2007 The Cape Schanck House was one of twenty projects nominated globally for the biennial Zumtobel Award, for outstanding sustainable contributions to architecture and humanity and was also the recipient of the RAIA Robin Boyd Award for Residential Architecture, Australia’s highest residential design accolade. The practice has exhibited widely and was recently included in the Australian Pavilion at the prestigious 2008 Venice Biennale of Architecture.
