Melanie was born in Munich in 1976 and graduated from the University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt in 2004 with an Engineering degree, specialising in Architecture.
Melanie grew up in a small town south west of Munich close to the German Alps. She spent much of her childhood outdoors, often on horseback, exploring nearby forests and landscapes. Moving to the south coast of Western Australia has given Melanie the opportunity to connect with a unique and unspoilt natural environment that she enjoys sharing with her family and equine friends.
Melanie has worked for award-winning architectural practices across Australia, including Wood Marsh in Melbourne and Taylor Robinson in Perth, taking part in such projects as the Australian Centre of Contemporary Art in Melbourne and the Scotch College Design and Technology building in Perth.
Specialised in environmentally sustainable design, Melanie is adept at responding to a project’s brief with clarity and vision, balancing form and function with the practicalities of construction.
Melanie manages the PTX Architects practice, and is responsible for coordinating the design and documentation for each project, as well as overseeing the implementation of architectural detail during construction.
