Duncan Hall

Duncan joined the Light House team in 2015 after several years working on community housing projects in Timor Leste. Duncan was drawn back to Canberra by the opportunity to work within a company striving to address the need for affordable, sustainable and liveable housing in Australia.

Duncan has previously worked with Collins Caddaye Architects (CCA) in Canberra and Steele Associates in Sydney, and has a long history of brick and rubble lugging as a construction labourer. With two architect grandfathers and an immediate family of carpenters, Duncan likes to think of the design and build process as a collaborative project between all parties.
