“There are exciting opportunities for growth in the Northern Territory with
government projects indicating the population of Darwin doubling over the next 15
years,” says Mr Savage.
“In particular, areas of health, defence, infrastructure and urban development will be
in focus and as such, there is a need for a national design and architecture practice
with the experience and local understanding to respond to new initiatives.”
“Hames Sharley has been working in the Northern Territory for several years
therefore it made sense to establish a permanent presence here.”
“The Darwin office will draw on the national group resources and experience within
the area in addition to growing a strong local team.”
Keith is an award winning architect and a recipient of three consecutive “Tracey
Awards”. He brings to Hames Sharley a strong understanding for design within the
region. He has worked on projects including “Jacana House,” set to be the first 5

projects, School of Medicine and Pharmacy and the ACIKE building (Australian
Centre for Indigenous Knowledge and Environment).
Hames Sharley also has offices in Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth, and Sydney, and
affiliated offices in China.
