Stewart Hollenstein is an architecture and urban design practice established in 2010. The studio is committed to addressing the challenges of contemporary society through the design of unique built environments.

Stewart Hollenstein is a highly innovative and inventive practice. Our team is led by directors Matthias Hollenstein and Felicity Stewart who bring to the practice a broad range of experience gained both in Australia and overseas. The practice is proud to operate in a dynamic studio environment where ideas are tested and boundaries pushed. The studio works with a specific and clear agenda to put meaningful human experiences at the centre of the design process and begins each design venture by asking key questions to identify the aspirations of the project and drive the design process.
