PEOPLE | Melina Hobday⁠
⁠
Melina is a crucial part of ABA’s management team. A Senior Architect, highly capable of the multifaceted juggle that comes with leading our Melbourne studio alongside growing her two gorgeous girls. Mel leads our Melbourne clients through every stage of the design and build process with a natural ease that comes with years of experience managing a wide range of projects. She has a particular design style that manifests in highly considered, beautifully crafted details and her treatment of spaces tends to have a similar touch creating architecture that has the quality and consideration of a piece of joinery.
