A1 Office Design Director Dana Mouassoui has quietly and persistently been turning the corporate interiors landscape sustainable for 20 years. Her influence is evident in many buildings and she has been an inspiration for those around her. As a Green Star Accredited Professional, Dana’s career started at Bates Smart Architects with large contributions, of which her most notable included the Royal Childrens Hospital in Melbourne.
Now leading a team of green designers at A1 Office; Dana’s influence can be admired in Melbourne and Sydney and will soon be international in 2021. Less tangible to the eye is the sustainability education of staff and clients Dana has undertaken and the greater effect this has had; including an upcycling of office furniture and conscious energy efficient design. Leading by example, Dana’s sustainability stance and work has led her to speaking events, being published in international design magazines and numerous online publications.
