Approach

LIMINAL Studio Team 2021

LIMINAL Studio is a transdisciplinary architecture and design practice noted for design excellence, creativity and our embrace of collaboration. Our interdisciplinary approach is captured through the LIMINAL Architecture, Spaces, Objects and Ideation identities.

‘LIMINAL' means at the threshold; exploring the potential of what can be. This drives our approach on every project.

The Studio is a globally connected, creatively agile think-tank that integrates design and architecture with the disciplines interior design, furniture, object design, arts, curation and production design.

Underpinning our work is the view that the quality of the environment we operate in, its connectedness to place and people, stimulates creativity, impacts on our desire to visit or inhabit those places, as well as our productivity, health and general wellbeing. LIMINAL is known for pushing boundaries and is driven by the belief that to create new design frontiers, collaboration across broader disciplines drives new thinking and empowers communities.

LIMINAL stands in solidarity with global leaders of the architectural profession as one of the 30 founding signatories of Architects Declare Australia, proclaiming a climate and biodiversity emergency. We commit to raising awareness of the urgent need for action among clients and supply chains and advocate for faster change in the industry towards regenerative design practices. We have committed our own Studio to operate on a net carbon zero basis and are working towards carbon neutral organisation certification managed and audited on an ongoing basis, through the carbon managing platform Pathzero.

At LIMINAL, we learn from the wisdom of the First Nations people, acknowledge the original and Traditional Owners’ care of Country and celebrate the contemporary creativity of the world’s oldest living culture.

LIMINAL is headquartered in Hobart, Tasmania and establishing a satellite studio in Melbourne.
