Chris brings her wealth of experience gained both in Australia and overseas to project design. Chris’s skill in masterplanning is to thoughtfully exploit the value of a site’s natural environment to maximise value for clients and enhance the appeal of the development. When designing individual buildings she creates warm, generous spaces with careful consideration of accessibility and appropriate, refined finishes.
In 1987 Chris formed her own practice, Christine Young & Associates. She joined with Royden Metcalf to form Young+Metcalf in 1989. For 30 years, the Young+Metcalf team have earned a reputation for high quality seniors living projects. Chris continues to explore new directions in the provision of affordable housing with emphasis on quality masterplanning, concept design and managing planning approvals.
