Ricky Lam

Klein — Director

    Having been involved in a spectrum of award-winning projects, from large-scale hospital campuses to boutique retail fit outs, Ricky has honed his craft as an accomplished designer and design leader in the practice.

    Ricky was promoted to Principal and Design Lead in 2019 having honed his craft as an accomplished designer in the practice since joining Klein in 2005 as a graduate.

    Ricky’s design leadership is evident in Klein’s most successful projects from major projects such as Burwood Hospital to the Best Award winning Shortland Health clinic. With 16 years at Klein he has a pedigree at the interface of health design and architecture with design expertise that encompasses hospital campus masterplanning, architectural building design, health planning, site analysis, feasibility, both public and private facilities, retirement and retail, and an acute focus on the quality of the interior and the patient experience.

    Ricky’s particular interest in projects with a social cause stems from a desire to provide for the most vulnerable strata of society through creative architectural solutions. He believes in the correlation between good design and the wellbeing of people and the land.

    He has a strong focus on the exhaustive investigation and understanding of the project brief, client’s objective and vision, and the project siting along with its wider physical, ecological and cultural context. Through these, a design narrative naturally presents itself to inform all aspects of the architecture.

    Ricky is a great communicator and has a collaborative approach to design, ensuring that the project aspirations and design concept are fully realised in the end product.
