Sam Hunter is a Principal and lead Design Architect at Lyons with an interest in the cultural value in public architecture, regardless of its scale or function. Informed by Lyons’ discursive design approach, Sam brings skills in urban, architectural, and interior design. He explores a range of contemporary ideas in our projects, including cultural engagement, the visual world, and research about the city.
His interest in the dissection of cultural value and architecture has driven Sam’s work and his contribution to award-winning Lyons projects over the last decades. These include the Swanston Academic Building (RMIT University), NUspace (University of Newcastle), the Broadmeadows Children’s Court, the New Student Precinct (University of Melbourne), The Springvale Community Hub and The Koorie Heritage Trust relocation.
For almost a decade Sam has shaped the minds of future architecture Masters graduates as a Masters level design tutor at RMIT University, and has recently commenced teaching design in the Masters programme at the University of Melbourne.
