Livee Tan


Livee is an Architect with experience working across a diverse range of scales and typologies, including Transport, Education, Sports and Commercial projects. Her project experience spans across Australia and Southeast Asia, and has worked in the Sydney and Melbourne studios of Cox Architecture.

With a strong passion for Urban Design and Public Architecture, Livee is committed to creating buildings and environments that support and engage with the surrounding public realms. It is this design ethos that drives her to advocate for a positive civic presence in each project as a means to encourage social change, while contributing to the built urban fabric.

Having worked closely with other disciplines in highly collaborative environments, she has developed a keen interest in a multi-disciplinary design approach to achieve successful, holistic outcomes. Through her involvement in complex and highly technical typologies, she has worked closely with clients and stakeholders to understand and evaluate their aspirations to ensure a tailored design response for each project, while continually striving to achieve a balance between function and form.

Since joining Cox Melbourne in 2010, Livee has also been responsible for the completion of a number of projects that saw the full spectrum of architectural design and implementation, where quality is maintained throughout the whole process. Key projects include the Caulfield to Dandenong Level Crossings Removal Project; Melbourne University Main Oval Pavilion Redevelopment; South Morang Rail Extension Project; and 567 Collins Street.

Within the studio, she also champions diversity and gender equality to encourage a progressive and dynamic working environment for the attainment and retention of talent. She is the Cox representative at the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC).
