Youssofzay & Hart is an architectural and interior design practice run by directors Belqis Youssofzay and David Hart based in Sydney, Australia.
Established in 2015, the practice is committed to built excellence through design services, research and creative collaborations with a focus on cultural, civic and public architecture. We provide a broad range of design services and bring to each project a committed sustainability agenda, in-depth experience and a collaborative spirit.
Belqis Youssofzay’s experience includes gallery redevelopments, exhibition design, specialist design consultancy for galleries and museums, as well as interpretive masterplanning for large cultural sites and institutions. Her previous clients include the Sydney Opera House, State Library of New South Wales, Queensland Museum South Bank, National Parks and Wildlife and the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
In 2015, she was awarded the Byera Hadley Travelling Scholarship by NSW Architect’s Registration Board to research contemporary models for art gallery and museum design as well as sustainable and contemporary examples of exhibition design in Japan, Europe and America.
David Hart’s project experience includes civic buildings for both public and private sector clients. A registered architect with an extensive built portfolio ranging from bespoke high-end housing, complex refurbishment of heritage commercial buildings to façade design for multi-million dollar health facilities, David brings expert knowledge of sustainability and engineered technologies in the built environment.
David’s work featured 5 times in the recent 2015 Australian Institute of Architects NSW Awards, and has been awarded two World Architecture Festival prizes.
