Our Awards

Tim Hurburgh and Mark O’Dwyer lead a multi-disciplinary team of architects, interior designers and planners, operating from an inner Melbourne studio.

H2o aims to produce high quality projects across all scales with a strong sustainability focus. Many projects have involved the adaptation and reuse of existing buildings including heritage structures and sites. We focus on complex owner occupied buildings requiring a high degree of coordination of urban design, space planning, architecture, interior design, furniture design and selection as well as project facilitation. The practice has developed comprehensive management and reporting processes to meet the rigorous requirements of our clients and their agents. Working nationally and internationally, our projects have been extensively published and recognized with numerous awards.
