Talina Edwards, Director and Architect
“When you’re passionate about your purpose, it feels good to do good things with good people for the greater good!”
Talina is passionate about creating healthy, beautiful, functional, comfortable and sustainable architecture which combines building-science and biophilic-design. Biophilia is about our intuitive connection to nature, where the health and wellbeing of people and planet are inextricably linked. This ethos extends to our purpose to ‘care for country’ and cultivate a living future for all.
Talina has gained recognition as an industry leader, known for her sustainable architecture and as a passionate advocate for building a better future. Talina has received many awards recognising her meaningful contributions to sustainability with her architectural projects, and for her advocacy roles as Board Director at Australian Passive House Association, Coordinator of Australian Architects Declare, and for the ArchiTeam Advocacy committee.
Talina has over 25 years experience in Architectural practice, and is a registered Architect in Victoria, a Certified Passive House Designer and is currently undertaking the Living Future Accreditation course to pursue her regenerative-design ethos for a society that is socially just, culturally rich and ecologically restorative.
Talina previously built a successful sustainable-design practice on her own over the past decade, and she’s now very happy to merge with kinfolk here at Envirotecture, extending our tribe. She now leads the Victorian branch of Envirotecture, with her carbon-neutral studio based in Wadawurrung country (Ballarat).
Talina cares deeply about ensuring her two sons and all future generations live in harmony with the earth.
