Hariklia Pontikinas

Russell and Yelland Architects

A solid all-rounder, but with a strong focus on interiors, Hariklia applies holistic design thinking during all architectural stages. She elevates simple materials by applying them in non-traditional ways, demonstrating design’s potency when beauty and practicality are in balance.

Prior to joining Russell & Yelland in 2015, Hariklia worked on educational, commercial and residential projects for reputable national and local architecture practices. Curious about the world, and about design for different contexts, she has travelled widely, completing various study and design tours throughout Europe and the USA.

Hariklia played a key role in the design of various projects at Nazareth Catholic College. Where the St Gabriel Centre has quickly become one of her favourite projects, with its dynamic, fun and quirky aesthetic… much like her personality.
