Community is a place for inspiration and a spirit of place. Our community centres inspire all ages and cultures to connect, enjoy and be valued. We develop places that are multi-gender, multi-age, multi-cultural, universally accessible, flexible and adaptable and are open, where we can deliver projects with a 100+ life cycle.
Sport is one of the great builders of social capital in Australia. Sport unifies, inspires and challenges and is at the heart and well being of our communities, and the work we do embraces the communities in which we do it.
Primary and secondary schools, special schools and universities all represent different design challenges, although they share the need for inclusion, and to communicate the wonder and beauty of learning.
We specialise in designing and planning healthcare facilities such as clinics, hospitals and mental health and other specialist units that not only enhance the experience for physicians and patients, but also send out a message about the priorities of our communities. We apply evidence-based planning and design with clinical indicators and economic outcomes that reward quality and productivity.
Our childcare centres create learning and friendship environments, and mark a child's first step towards school. They are places of fun, learning and development.
We are registered with Heritage Victoria and Heritage Tasmania and have the expertise to conserve and restore structures of heritage significance. Our experience extends to working on projects with heritage significance including town halls, senior citizen facilities, community centres, childcare centres, aboriginal services and restoring libraries.
We create civic centres that promote healthy, connected and engaging workplaces. We have experience delivering a range of office accommodation and administration facilities as well as depot facilities. These are places that send out a message to those who visit them, and those who work within them, that these are successful, competitive and thriving organisations.
Our homes are our refuges, the places to which we return to find shelter, comfort and nurture. We believe in creating individual places that connect people to their surrounding environment and we make sure we balance privacy with connection, sanctuary with engagement.
We do competitions as we believe in a future of design, it is our incubator and allows us to explore architecture as a test bed of our ideas. We look to influence and make an impact on the future, setting architecture as that place between ecology and people. We think big, looking back to look forward.
