About

Taylor and Hinds is an award winning Tasmanian based architecture practice, which was formed by Poppy Taylor and Mat Hinds in 2013. 

We design liveable, functional, and memorable environments for people.

Our practice is experience driven, and client focused.  We seek particular, high quality architectural responses to each site, and to the specific needs of each commission.

We offer expertise across the range of architectural practice and building scale, including feasibility, master-planning, design documentation and contract administration. 

 

Poppy Taylor. B.Env.Des, B.Arch (First Class Honours UTAS) Registered Architect.

With 15 years of Industry experience, Poppy has been involved in number of high-quality private sector tourism, heritage and residential projects.  In 2011 Poppy received the AIA Tasmanian Chapter Emerging Architect Prize. Her acute sensibility as a practitioner is defined by her capacity to clearly communicate spatial ideas and to understand the technical means by which ideas are made into built outcomes.  

 

Mat Hinds.  B.Env.Des, B.Arch (First Class Honours UTAS) Registered Architect.

Mat received his architectural education in both Tasmania and abroad, and registered as an Architect in Tasmania in 2011. In 2018 he was awarded the Tasmanian Emerging Architects Prize for his contribution to the profession. 

Driven and committed to a high-quality design outcome, Mat works closely with our clients. He has a nuanced and technically astute architectural mind, and seeks sensitive, rigorous and affordable design outcomes. He has held teaching and associate lecturing and examiner positions at the University of Tasmania for over a decade, and has taught in a number of institutions internationally.
