Led by a registered and practicing architect, The Henry Project delivers full architectural services, with a focus on designing for multiple households across one or more titles.
Being socially well connected improves individual wellbeing, reduces the sense of isolation, and develops strong shared communities. The design of our homes and our streets plays a vital role in providing opportunities for these social connections to form.
The Henry Project is built on the idea that the design of our housing should consider the social dimension of sustainable development. We aim to improve the wellbeing and quality of life of residents, neighbours and communities by providing spaces that make it easy to find connection and to sustain that social connection in the long term.
The services available include consulting, documentation, design, construction administration and facilitation.
The Henry Project was founded by Meriam Salama.
MERIAM SALAMA is a registered and practicing architect and entrepreneur with nearly 20 years in the architecture and design industry. She has worked in Senior Architect roles in architectural practices, managing multi-million dollar residential and institutional projects from design through to construction. She understands what is required to bring architectural developments to successful completion, having led numerous teams of architects and consultants.
In recent years, Meriam has become concerned about the increasing isolation experienced by many households in the community. She has seen the decline in affordable housing in Australia and the growth of house sizes throughout the country. The need for better social connection, the benefits of shared spaces and the desire to facilitate co-ownership developments led Meriam to found The Henry Project.
She uses her architectural expertise to help people discover how our homes and shared spaces can improve our quality of life.
