Edwina Hughes

Design Associate

Edwina is a rare talent with a deep interest in design and the creation of places that are sensitive to context and filled with moments of beauty and delight. Edwina completed her Masters of Architecture at the University of Tasmania where she achieved high distinction being placed on the Deans Roll of Honour and also receiving the AIA Graduate Prize, the highest honour a student of architecture can achieve.

Edwina gained experience with some leading Tasmanian architect offices (Liminal Studio and Terroir) before bringing her enthusiasm and design skills to join Inspiring Place in early 2013.

Her thorough research, creative thinking and pursuit of design excellence has become a trademark of her professional work. She has embraced the opportunities for building her design experience and skills at Inspiring Place by working on detailed landscape design projects, urban design projects, tourism development, trail plans, sport and recreation master plans and heritage conservation plans.

Outside of work hours, you are likely to find Edwina cranking the mountain bike around the hilly slopes or hitting the tarmac for long distance training on a road bike. In the weekends or during holidays, Edwina is often competing in mountain bike racing events in Tasmania or across the country. She has also been involved with overseas expeditions and has great insight and understanding of what makes a great trail network.
