In a move to strengthen their growing health and science team, Gray Puksand has appointed Aurelia Gachet as a Melbourne associate.
Gachet is joining the firm with more than a decade of experience in the sector under her belt, working with The Royal Children’s Hospital team, and working on the Bendigo Base Hospital. To date, one of Gachet’s career highlights was working on the Cabrini Health Gandel Wing, which was named the world’s most beautiful hospital by Vogue Australia.
Gachet is also active in the academic community, lecturing on architecture practices at Melbourne University, Monash University, and RMIT University.
“I believe people’s well-being and the ambition of enriching human experience should be at the core of every building,” says Gachet.
She is elated by the new appointment at Gray Puksand, citing the immense potential of joining a team in its early stages.
“The pressure is real, but the forecast of opportunities is extremely positive,” says Gachet.
Gachet also anticipates that collaborating with Quentin Siek, Greg Wines and Robert Puksand, designers known for their resounding calmness and generosity, will deliver fun and excitement to the design process.
Founding partner Robert Puksand is hoping that the addition of Gachet to a team already thriving on dedication and passion will eventually credit Gray Puksand as Australia’s foremost design partner of healthcare organisations.
Gray Puksand currently holds a $200 million national health and science portfolio which includes projects such as Queensland Health, Melbourne Health, Northern Health, Austin Health and The Royal Women’s Hospital.
