Youssofzay Hart

Youssofzay Hart

Youssofzay + Hart is an architecture practice based in Sydney offering specialty consultancy in gallery, museum and exhibition design for major cultural institutions around Australia.

In their built works, they are constantly striving to achieve novel and sustainable outcomes through research, material innovation and close conversation with makers and fabricators. At the core of their design approach is foregrounding of the artefact and curatorial agenda, allowing the design intervention to frame the story but not impose.

Director Belqis’ expertise is in cultural projects, predominantly exhibition and gallery design, with over 11 years’ experience in the public sector. She was the in-house architect for the Art Gallery of NSW for 4 years prior to establishing Youssofzay + Hart. In 2015 she was awarded the prestigious Byera Hadley Travelling Scholarship to research the architectural attributes and sustainable design strategies of leading international art institutions and museums across Japan, Europe and US.
