Woollan Hamlett Architects focus on the idea that everything we do must be of benefit to the community. We like to work with schools, community groups and private clients to create a better future for the people who will live, learn, work and play in the buildings we create.

I have worked on a wide range of design and conservation projects – and developed the Practice’s expertise in working with independant schools.
I see the our focus on working with, and empowering, community groups as an important area of Architectural practice. In my spare time, of which I do not have any, I serve as a Volunteer Community Visitor for the Office of the Public Advocate, and moonlight as a jazz pianist.

Prior to becoming a Director at Woollan Hamlett Architects, I worked with a number of architectural design practices on residential, aged care and community projects. Already well versed in construction and detail, I am now designing projects of varying scales – civic, education and small projects – and loving it.
I am a guest reviewer for urban design and architectural studies at Deakin University and the Melbourne School of Design, and a frequent volunteer for the Robin Boyd Foundation. To enable client outcomes, innovation and social relevance through my design process I am interested in critically engaging with the Australian cultural milieu and where this crosses over into the urban realm.
What some of our clients and friends have said about us:
“Redmond provided invaluable architectural services to a considerably complex vocational training and childcare centre project. The project had been languishing under the supervision of another couple of architects. This was in part due to complex nature of the building project and in part because of the many stakeholders involved. The work provided by Redmond both in terms of architectural skills and relationship management allowed the project to gain momentum forwards. Without Redmond’s services it would have been close to impossible to advance the project.”
Paul Watzlaff, Property Manager & Group Accountant for Pragmatic Training
“We were blown away with Woollan Hamlett’s timely delivery and submission of our Grant Application to the Victorian Independent Schools Block Grant Authority (VISBGA) for our proposed library and learning space. We absolutely loved the concept ideas and critical thinking demonstrated in the scheme, and we believe his design for the space would help us give agency to our students who have specialist needs. Redmond and his team more than exceeded our expectations.”
Steve McAllister, Principal, Bairnsdale Christian Community School
“Redmond, whenever I work with you it is truly a delight. Your work is always accurate and gets turned around really fast, no matter what it is. You are the pick of the bunch.”
Jonathon W, Architect
“Over the period Redmond worked with the practice, I came to respect his professionalism, focus and effectiveness as a young architect on whom I could rely. He has a very broad interest in Architecture in its many forms, understands construction, and has built an understanding of the world of development and the business of architecture.”
