About Min Hall

Min Hall

Min Hall is a practising architect, teacher and researcher.

Before moving to Auckland in 2010, Min practiced in the Nelson region for three decades, firstly on her own account and then as co founder of Arthouse Architecture Ltd in 2001. She was the first woman to graduate from Victoria University School of Architecture in 1978 and since then her work has received a number of awards and appeared in national magazines.

Min’s work reflects her concern for environmental issues and commitment to site specific architectural solutions. She was a member of the inaugural NZIA Environmental Group, and is the NZIA representative on the SNZ committee that drafted the 1998 Earth Building Standards. In 2012 she completed a two year M.Arch research project investigating the performance and potential of earth and straw bale as building materials in New Zealand.

As well as carrying out commissions in the North and South Islands, Min also teaches studio at the Unitec Department of Architecture.
