Architect Nick Harding is the founder and Principal of Ha, a studio he founded in 2012. Harding’s focus for the practice has been undertaking people-focused design projects of varying scales and typologies, all with an emphasis on sustainable design. As a practice, Ha believes in designing harmoniously between interior and exterior, fundamentally taking an ‘inside out’ approach. As such, Harding has developed a certain strength in interior design. In addition to his project work, he is currently developing a research base of (truly) mixed-use developments, with the intention of establishing future models for Australian cities. Harding graduated from the University of South Australia in 2003. He worked with John Wardle Architects (JWA) in 2004, focusing primarily on educational and residential projects. In his time at JWA, Harding worked on multiple award-winning projects, including UniSA’s chancellory building, The Hawke Centre, which also houses the Samstag Musuem of Contemporary Art.
