Kerry Hill(1943-2018)

Kerry Hill is an Australian architect specializing in hotel design in tropical Asia, specializing in the beauty of architecture from light and shadow.

Born in Perth, Australia in 1943, Kerry Hill graduated from the Perth Institute of Technology and the University of Western Australia in 1968. Worked at Howlett & Bailey in Perth from 1969 to 1971.

From 1972 to 1974, he worked for Bali and Hong Kong architects and engineers Palmer & Turner in Hong Kong. From 1974 to 1978, he went to the Palmer & Turner Jakarta office. Kerry Hill founded Kerry Hill Architects in Singapore in 1979. In 1995, a second firm was established in Fremantle, Australia.

Kerry Hill's work aims to create a unique character in the space between the collections, and to adopt a minimalist design approach, using a large number of local building materials to make the building a story for people to savor.

In 1995 he was awarded the Kenneth F Brown Asia Pacific Culture and Architecture, in 2003 the RAIA Robyn Boyd Award for the Oglivie House, and in 2006 the Royal Australian Institute of Architects Gold Medal.
