Soul Space is run by property economist and building designer Paul Hindes, registered with the Queensland Building and Construction Commission, Lic 1160074.
For commercial clients, I look at the use of built assets through the perspectives of design, development potential, and business outcomes. My interests are in designing for the effective use of built assets to improve space utilisation, reducing operating costs and improving commercial returns.
For residential clients, I take into consideration client’s needs and wants, effective space use and the likely value being added to the property.
My interest is to achieve the greatest impact in both design outcomes and property value.
Paul has 30+ years of experience in architecture and building design, gaining valuable experience working with award-winning Australian architects like John Andrews International, Edwards Madigan Torzillo Briggs, DEM and Inscan Design, as well as overseas in El Salvador.
In 2004, Paul formed Soul Space, after moving to Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, designing quality resort-style homes as well as design services for commercial buildings.
One of Paul’s houses was shortlisted for the Grand Designs Australia television program, his work has been published in a number of books and magazines and he has won Best of Houzz awards for several years.
Paul taught design courses at TAFE in Ultimo and The Design Centre in Enmore in Sydney Australia. He is a former Sunshine Coast Branch President of the BDAQ – Building Designer’s Association of Queensland Inc., and an accredited HIA GreenSmart Energy Efficient Consultant.
