"Clients come to us because we listen deeply to a diverse community of consumers and stakeholders. Our approach is to collaborate and co-design with them on a completely bespoke facility that exceeds their expectations and adapts easily for future advancements and innovations.”

Justin Littlefield has established ClarkeHopkinsClarke as one of the leading providers of architectural services in the health industry. His team and consortiums deliver significant health infrastructure projects at all of Victoria’s major hospitals, and across the state. This includes strategic tertiary hospital redevelopments such as the Northern Hospital Redevelopment and Regional Pathways Mental Health.

As a leader, Justin brings to his projects more than 30 years of specialist healthcare design and masterplanning expertise, and broad experience including commercial and educational design. He’s recognised for bespoke, biophilic healthcare environments designed with, rather than simply for, diverse consumers and stakeholders. He embodies our practice value of Listen First, expertise in community architecture, and distinctive approach to stakeholder engagement and co-design. Justin unites project teams behind a shared vision and delivers complex projects that surpass expectations, not only for patients but staff, families and communities too.

A Partner at ClarkeHopkinsClarke for more than two decades, Justin has strong business acumen and industry nous. Clients know his projects are meticulously planned, staged and constructed to support continuation of service, efficient adaptive re-use, and maintenance of the budget with the clinical scope required. He leads a talented team that prides itself on being
solution-oriented and enjoyable to work with.

Justin’s relationships with some of Australia’s leading healthcare providers were forged on both new builds and adaptive reuse of existing facilities, including hospitals, specialist facilities, community health, masterplanned medical precincts, and mental health. His team is working on some of the first mental health facilities developed in response to the Royal Commission’s full recommendations, delivering new models of service through an innovative co-design process centring people with lived experience.
