Ours is a process of explorative design, converting a practical list of needs and aspirations into stimulating and functional spaces that benefit all those who experience them, and in the process, provide something extra and unexpected.
Welcome to Hardy Milazzo. We are a contemporary commercial Architectural and Interior Design practice with a deep insight into human behaviour and its environment.
We approach our clients, consultants, each other and our tasks even-handedly and with humility. We seek a deeper bond with our clients; we seek their trust and openness. We listen, we think, we discuss. We express and demonstrate an informed, creative and insightful opinion.
From increasing the productivity of a workforce or influencing the purchase experience of shoppers, to stimulating learning in young minds or driving social engagement of a community, our design is developed through critical insights into human behaviour.

Rob believes design is the union of art and construction. Without a building being built, we only have art. Architecture is a serious responsibility. Daily, it impacts the emotions and attitudes of both occupants and passers-by.
The largest portion of his work is in Contract Documentation & Contract Administration. The trick is creating a triple win. Owners need effective, functional and sometimes inspirational buildings; we want solid design quality and the builder wants design that can be efficiently constructed. He is a tinkerer, a former metal fabricator, and many of his family and friends are tradesmen. This gives him an advantage in developing documents & site work.
