  • Congratulations to our Urban Provocateur!

    We’re delighted to see Benjamin Driver awarded in the DARCH awards for his passionate commitment to urban issues.

  • 2016

    Late 2015 saw the completion of projects in Strathfield and Burwood – middle ring housing sites with transitional urban conditions.

    We begin 2016 with works on Campbell Section5 reaching a conclusion and works on Constitution Avenue continuing. Builders have been appointed for the Sydney University Boatshed We have a number of Development Applications on small, challenging inner urban sites in various Councils, and we are working on a range of family houses, due to begin construction in the next few months.

    We hope to progress works on an adaptive reuse project in the beautiful Beynon and Hayward building Petersham, and see the commencement of the Parramatta Escarpment Boardwalk towards the latter part of this year.

  • Studios 54 wins National Multiple Housing Award

    We are pleased to announce that Studios 54 has won a national award for Multiple Housing from the Australian Institute of Architects. The jury citation says -

    ‘The framed element that signifies the lift core and the thickened wall of services has its internal panel tiled with glazed ceramic tiles. We could be in Naples, not Sydney. But this is the point. Studios 54 is a project that announces the larger and necessary project of consolidating the Australian city.’

    We thank the jury for their generous citation, and our clients and all of the consultants, subcontractors and tradespeople who have been involved in the project.

  • Lennox Bridge archaeological dig

    A new website has been launched by Parramatta City Council showing the findings of the archaeological dig at the Lennox Bridge Portals site in Parramatta. The website will be updated with other drawings and video footage as the research component of the project is completed. Lennox Bridge website We urge you to take the time to look at the extraordinary discoveries that have been made during the archaeological dig.

  • Aaron Bolot Award for Multiple Housing 2015

    Hill Thalis are very pleased to have received the Aaron Bolot Award for Multiple Housing for Studios 54 in Surry Hills.

    We were so saddened for our amazing client when she had to stop the works on the Horizon House – but it may be about to find a new owner to complete it. See the dramatic drone footage of the property shot by Goldeneye media

Coogee stair street; Surveyor General Sir Thomas Mitchell’s street grid so strong vs topography so steep, particularly on the headlands and in the valley.
