Sarah Paddick

Senior Associate - Architecture

Sarah believes that architecture is a collaborative process between designer and client that results in a unique solution that fulfills its purpose elegantly, simply and effectively.

The process of collaboration is what keeps Sarah motivated. Each project brings together a new group of people, a new site and a new set of challenges. A constant desire to question, disrupt and look for new solutions has resulted in her development as a specialist in secure facility design.

With 30 years’ experience in the Adelaide architectural sector, Sarah brings a broad range of experience to the table. Equally comfortable in her niche specialist area of secure architecture, or delivering residential, commercial and educational fields of architecture and numerous government projects. Sarah applies the same diligence and care to all her projects and clients.

In 2010, Sarah received the Catherine Helen Spence Memorial Scholarship and during that time carried out a research study into mother and baby accommodation within secure facilities. She has been a regular presenter and chairperson at the National Prison Planning Conferences, and has authored a number of articles in various publications.
