NH Director Hamish Lyon named Life Fellow

We’re pleased to announce that NH Director Hamish Lyon was named a Life Fellow at this year’s Victorian Chapter Honours Event on Friday evening at the Capitol Theatre.

Life Fellows of the Victorian Chapter of the Australian Institute of Architecture are individuals who have demonstrated a significant contribution to the practice of architecture.

In their citation, the Victorian Chapter noted: Hamish Lyon is a director and founding member of NH Architecture and leads the firm’s design thinking and direction, working across a wide range of architectural projects, urban initiatives and masterplans. For over 20 years, he has been responsible for design leadership and continuity within the studio on projects of all scales and typologies.

Hamish’s significant projects at NH include the QV development in central Melbourne, Melbourne’s 6 Star Green Star Convention and Exhibition Centre (Stages 1 and 2), the major redevelopment of the Myer Bourke Street store in Melbourne’s CBD, and the redevelopment of the Melbourne and Olympic Parks sporting facilities, including Margaret Court Arena.

Hamish actively contributes to the profession and the Institute. He was co-creative director of the 2015 National Conference, a National Councillor from 2011-2014, a longstanding member of the Victorian Awards Committee and served on multiple awards juries, including as Chair of Juries in 2016.

Hamish has taught at both RMIT and the University of Melbourne. He contributes as a member of the Office of the Victorian Government Architect’s Victorian Design Review Panel, speaks at public and industry forums and writes for Architecture Australia. Hamish is thoroughly engaged in the conversation about architecture.

Hamish Lyon is a most worthy recipient of the Life Fellowship.
