Tina Lindner

Tina Lindner

Principal Designer / Founder

For Tina Lindner, “Architecture for life” is something that grew out of a childhood passion for drawing houses. This early attention to design fundamentals would help lay the foundation for an accomplished career within building design.

After studying at the Footscray Institute of Architectural Drafting, Tina spent 11 years working at a then-small residential firm Piccolo, which would become a major residential developer within Victoria. Furthering her studies, Tina undertook an Interior Decorating course at RMIT. Drawing from a strong portfolio of successful projects and maintaining a reputation of delivering more than expected, Tina was motivated to establish her own firm and personal brand.

Since founding the company in 2003, Tina Lindner has taken on many roles within the business, overseeing every aspect from inception to completion. She relies on her keen eye for detail as Principal Designer, while her willingness and determination to go over and above ensures everyone is happy, serving as Client Liaison. Together this has resulted in strong relationships with clients that carry over long after the job is completed.

Her work has frequently been featured in industry publications such as Home Beautiful and Inside Out magazine. Some of her many accolades include winning the Masters Building Association’s award for ‘Best New Home Between $500k to $1M ‘ as well as ‘Best Renovation Over $1M’.

"I wanted to be a designer from an early age. I passionately embrace every project as individually as the next. I get extreme satisfaction working together with my clients and watching their delight in the evolution of their dreams."
