The SPH Workplace Design Team is led by David Hall. David is a commercial Interior Designer with 35 years’ experience from London (DEGW Architects and Workplace Consultancy) to Beijing to Perth, and has worked extensively with businesses and corporations to design effective, functionally agile and inspirational workplaces.

Our design team includes:

Associate and Senior Interior Designer Lisa Hunt has 15 years experience specialising in health and aged care ranging from $450K to $1.2 Billion. She has worked extensively on corporate fitout, education, multi-unit residential and defence projects.

Senior Interior Designer, Tika Santoso, has 20 years experience in specialist workplace design. She has worked as the lead designer of corporate office fitouts for large Australian Corporations. Her experience and understanding of Activity Based Work philosophies will ensure the most agile and progressive corporate office workplace environment is delivered.

Cherie Kaptein, who is a Registered Architect and Interior Designer, and has been superintendent representative on a number of BMW projects. Cherie has been working as an interior designer for 15 years. She is also a registered nurse which is very beneficial for our medical projects.

Senior Interior Designer, Clare Emerson, has over 12 years experience a variety of projects ranging from 100m2 to 20,000m2 in size.  She has been the lead designer on corporate fitout, medical, education, aged care and institutional projects.

Georgia Hunt has been working at SPH for 3 years as an Interior Designer working with the rest of the team. She is now running her own small projects with team leader David Hall.

SPH wrote the accommodation standards manuals for Offices and Workshops for both BHP and Rio Tinto. SPH continues to work for these companies, as well Western Power (Due Diligence and Test Fit Planning), other State Commissions and Corporations, St Martins Group and others.
The practice operates under the belief that good architecture should always produce good outcomes for clients, their staff and the general community. Our team see meeting the needs of end users as our primary focus to ensure the design process meets the requirements of all concerned.

SPH undertakes all of our drafting work in-house and we have deliberately chosen to operate a practice with a leaning towards engaging experienced senior drafting staff. This is a reflection on the importance the directors place on the standard of delivery of our projects and the respect in which we hold our clients. Our primary documentation platform is Revit, however we have strong capabilities in Revit and Autocad.

SPH also serve the State Government sector (currently engaged on the Pilbara Institutes’s Electrical and Instrumentation Centre of Excellence), and local government having recently completed the City of Perth’s Key Worker Housing Project.

SPH are on several architectural panels including the Department of Finance Building Management & Works Architecture and Interiors Panels, UWA, Aboriginal Aged Care Services and Western Power.

SPH’s specialist workplace design team understand “corporate office fitout”, however we backup this know-how with precise contract documentation and a rigorous delivery process. SPH is an ISO 9001:2008 quality assured company and registered architectural practice ensuring consistency in high quality standards both on and off site.
