Personal wellness has never felt so important. More than just a lifestyle pursuit, health and wellbeing has quickly become an everyday imperative for home, work, and within the public sphere.

Join Alicia McKimm (Golden), Dale O’Brien (Gray Puksand), Richard Healy (Bates Smart) and Lisa Gasperotti (Porta Mouldings) as we explore the meaning of wellness in a post-pandemic world, how biophilic design can influence our lives for the better and how designers are creating a roadmap for better living going forward.


Tonya Hinde

With a personal aim to ‘humanize’ spaces, big or small, and over 26 years of experience, Tonya Hinde stands out as a collaborative leader in the Australian architectural industry. She is renowned for working with multiple stakeholders and high level technical requirements to deliver on creative and vibrant design outcomes. She shares BLP’s deeply held belief that our future is dependent on creating healthy buildings and environments, and that good design is instrumental in making people feel better.

Tonya has been a significant contributor to BLP’s ground breaking healthcare design work, from the landmark Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) in Melbourne, Perth Children’s Hospital to The Orygen Development for Youth Mental Health. The powerful combination of expanded research in universal wellbeing, along with inspired design outcomes, has become Tonya’s signature.

Alicia McKimm

Alicia ensures uniqueness infuses all projects, design excellence paramount aligned with close collaboration with all involved. Functional ingenuity with pragmatic, sensible resolutions are a constant focus, a belief design should work and always be beautiful. Her approach is driven by a desire to express intelligence, minimalism and wonder through design.

Alicia’s questionable nature ensures all components of our projects are constantly reviewed, this discourse ever present amongst the GOLDEN team.
