Solvën is a highly versatile architect bringing 15 years of experience through all phases of the project lifecycle. She has a unique and diverse experience in designing and delivering medium to large-complex developments spanning mixed-use, adaptive re-use, retail/hospitality, cultural and multi-residential sectors of Australia and France.
Her management of large projects with complex briefs for high-profile clients shaped her open-hearted interest to collaboration and design approach which balances the functional, aesthetic and economic needs of a project whilst always achieving the best design outcome. Her portfolio of work reflects her broad interests which expand from the smallest interior design detail through to large buildings and urban regeneration areas.
Solvën is fascinated about mixed-use developments and adaptive reuse programs that emerge from the latter with a focus on creating pockets of cities that become new destinations where communities can relate to. She has recently led the Locomotive Workshop redevelopment of Bays 1 to 5 in South Eveleigh, one of New South Wales's most significant heritage buildings and hybrid mixed-use destinations in Sydney.
