Tim Hunt | Associate, Melbourne Lighting Lead, Arup


With a background in industrial design, Tim leads Arup’s lighting team in Melbourne. Tim likes to innovate and challenge the norm to find new ways of approaching problems, through creativity, research, testing and embracing new technologies.

In his time at Arup, Tim has worked in the Sydney, London and Melbourne offices. This has given him both local and international experience on several wide ranging lighting projects including concept design for airports, detailed design in award winning workplaces, international retail lighting, and the design, fabrication and commissioning of light art installations. This diverse, international portfolio has provided Tim with the ability to develop strong relationships and build trust with his clients, allowing him to work with them to solve challenges and help create inspiring spaces after dark. Tim has a solid understanding of the holistic design process, from client facing presentations and initial conceptualisation, drawing and specification documents, custom luminaire design to dealing with contractors and commissioning.
