Annabel Lahz Logo

Annabel Lahz is a highly respected architect with an impressive body of work including education, public and urban architecture, such as the Wallace Wurth Building ($120m) and the Lowy Cancer Research Centre ($100m), both at the University of New South Wales.

Annabel is known for her ideas-based approach to architecture and developing strong design concepts. She considers architecture to be a balance between the pragmatic and the conceptual and is skilled maintaining the integrity of the design, whilst balancing her clients needs, budget and time constraints.

She is particularly interested in the intersection of landscape, urban design and architecture, and the integration of the inside and the outside to create public and community spaces. Annabel believes architecture is a tactile, as well as visual, medium. It should respond not only to its site context but also to its cultural and social contexts, creating environments and experiences that enhance the daily lives of their users.

Annabel graduated from the University of Queensland with Honours and received the Queensland Institute of Architects Medallion, the Board of Architects Prize and the University Medal. Before establishing Lahznimmo architects in 1996, she worked at Lindsay Clare Architects and Lawrence Nield and Partners Australia. She is recognized by her peers for her significant contribution to the architecture profession through regular invitations to speak at conferences, as well as participating in a variety of award and review panels.
