H_SCALED is a multidisciplinary design studio reliant on the principles and elements of architecture.
Fundamental to our practice are concepts such as sustainability and resilience. We focus on the digital cognitive environment as a means of shaping human experience by building upon the Human Scale Model to accommodate the ever-growing
H_SCALED draws inspiration from the natural environment, human endeavor and technological resources to offer optimal design solutions.
The Singaru proposal begins at the scale of a master plan for a mega city and progressively reaches human scale in its architectural form. As part of the outcome of the proposed new rule system, cluster towns will function in a self-sustaining condition taking closer care of the local population and providing higher quality of life especially for children and the elderly.
H_SCALED concept for Hydrogen Fuels Australia: Pump Design
The fourth Industrial Revolution has created a movement as disruptive as the Age of Enlightenment of the 17th and18th centuries. We have at our fingertips the technology to make a positive global difference, to not only stop polluting the environment but to improve its condition while maintaining use of the technology we rely on daily. In possession of such advanced technology we have been presented with an opportunity to create balance between the synthetic and natural elements of our environment, to create harmony by maximising the circular use of our resources and eliminating harmful impacts on our world.

H_Station signifies a grand step in a global initiative toward a sustainable future. In an era of extreme technological progress and environmental degradation, H_Station provides hope that a balance between the synthetic and natural world could be achieved.
Various methods of investigation and exploration of architecture in a digital world and the human scale
From the ancient Greco-Roman Classical Order to Le Corbusier’s Le Modulor, the human scale model for the built environment was based on the physical proportions of a 6ft male. In present-day urban design, these models which governed the humanistic aspect of architecture for over 2,000 years, have now become outdated. This is mainly due to scientific and technological advances. Cognitive environments are another major contributor as they have expanded our reach through haptic and virtual devices. The establishment of digitally generated architecture has, in both its digital and built state, begun to display elements of non-human-centeredness. Without a human scale model to apply to future developments, there is a potential that these new tools will be unwieldy. This could mean that a human-centered future in a robotically built world will be greatly challenged.
