Exposing the curiosities of Australian architects. Curated by Rachel Nolan and Karen Alcock.
Clare Cousins established her Melbourne practice, Clare Cousins Architects, in 2005. Engaging in projects large and small, the studio has a particular interest in housing and projects that nurture community.
Maintaining a balanced professional profile, Clare is actively involved in the broader design community. She is a life fellow of the Australian Institute of Architects and a past national president.
While Clare has amassed a broad depth of experience across various project types and scales, she is increasingly focused on socially minded projects, believing that good design should be available to all.
Clare was an inaugural investor in the Nightingale model, a socially, financially, and ecologically sustainable multi-residential housing model. She is now undertaking her own Nightingale project as one of six architecture practices collaborating to deliver Nightingale Village as both architect and developer.
