Global design and consulting firm Woods Bagot has named Todd Hammond as its new head of interiors,

Hammond, recognised as a leader in Australian interior design, will work out of the firm’s Sydney studio.

He previously held directorial positions at BVN Donovan Hill and whojdesign, where his passion for delivering “functional, sustainable and innovative environments” was demonstrated through an array of widely recognised and award-winning projects.

Hammond started out as a craftsman, creating interiors and project for hospitality, residential and retail clients, with projects ranging from creative agency fitouts to strategised workplaces for large professional service firms to hospitality venues and private residencies.

In his new position at Woods Bagot, Hammond will use his strong leadership credentials to mentor staff while encouraging creative collaboration and knowledge sharing. Outside of the company, he will focus on client strategy, relationships and marketing.

“This is the start of an exciting year for Woods Bagot and myself,” he said. “Working with such a dynamic and skilled team, my transition to Woods Bagot will be about further developing the design language internally and with our clients, and ensuring the high level of design that I am known for.”

“This will ultimately benefit the Woods Bagot design culture and what we deliver for our clients. As designers we are privileged to create unique environments that connect, engage and sustain life.”

Hammond’s most recent works included the Maquarie Bank workplace in Sydney; Virgin Active Healthclubs in both Sydney and Singapore and Herbert Smith Freehills in Sydney.

He is currently working on Woods Bagot’s Gilbert + Tobin’s upcoming workplace project in Sydney’s Barangaroo. Due for completion this year, the law firm will be taking over 9,500 square metres of space within International Towers where Hammond will have the opportunity to exercise his design credentials.
