Isabella is a registered Architect in Victoria (ARBV). She has a keen interest in sustainable design, specifically materials. Isabella graduated with a Master of Architecture from Monash University.

In 2022, she initiated and now leads the Materials working group, which has 20 architectural practices from around Australia. In 2023, she was invited to speak on a panel at Sydney Build. Isabella founded the non-profit Susty Spec and launched an Instagram account @sustyspec to educate architects on material lifecycle and embodied carbon. In 2023, she organised and ran an event at MPavilion about new sustainable building materials and experiments. In 2021-22, Isabella was lead tutor for the undergraduate core subject of Technologies and Environments at Monash University which specialises in environmentally sustainable design and structural engineering. In 2022, Isabella was one of four finalists for the coveted Green Building Council of Australia’s ‘Future Green Leader’ award. In 2022, she completed GreenStar Accredited Professional training.
Her initiation of and subsequent leadership within the group has resulted in a coming together of 20-30 practices to conduct in-kind research and produce resources. In our upcoming AGM I will be pitching the next 12 months for the Materials working group and plans to raise greater awareness and involvement across industry.
