Yep. We are architects, and designers of all kinds.
But we're not ‘jacks of all
trades’. We are not multi-
taskers, and this is not
the Martha Stewart home
page. We are specialists
(with no talent for crochet).


Each member of the skilled Hachem team brings differing expertise and experience to the table. This means that we can work with a broad range of clients on large, multi-faceted projects, as well as specialised commissions.

...We collaborate. We like conversation, and concepts (and coffee). Our architects don't know what kerning is, and our graphic designers wouldn't know an actual finial if it poked somebody in the eye... But we all agree that the integration of disciplines leads, simply, to the very best results. We have the resources to offer our clients a complete and cohesive package.

Sofie and Nadia are the studio's Key
Stakeholders. This title, they are certain,
will one day have a great deal to do with
provisions of Wagyu beef. They will accept
this role with relish. (Or even tomato sauce,
if all the relish is gone).


The studio's founder and director is Fady Hachem. For many years, Fady has been recognised in design fields as a leader and innovator. His portfolio includes diverse projects, both at home in Melbourne and abroad, and his clients range from local entrepreneurs to international royalty.

The results of Fady's award-winning work have been published extensively, and even featured on TV (woot). Fady's mission has been to undertake a rigorous cross-disciplinary study of design in order to offer a complete, integrated package to his clients. Fady wrote his own profile because he, like, owns the company. His hobbies include hanging with the Pomeranians, and referring to himself in the third person.
