About

Architecture is the art we live in. It questions our preconceptions and finds the limits of innovation. Architecture needs a brave client.

 

Our aim is to generate a specific and essential design response to your project – the functional programme, site and technology. Ideas shape form, and form reshapes ideas. We pursue design integrity, efficiency and precision to optimise the materials, energy and cost of construction. We engage seminal theory and combine sketching and model making with computer-aided design and thermal analysis. Our commitment is to deliver an intelligent, original and enduring work of architecture.

We can provide design services for any location. Our project capability ranges from single and multi unit residential to commercial development and urban design. Our work is recognised by major competition and professional awards at national and state levels. Director Simon Kringas is an accredited architect with over 25 years professional experience and a PhD in architectural history and theory. As a university academic, Simon directed Masters design studios and lectured in urban design, technology and sustainability. Simon's scholarly outputs include international design-led research and journal publications.
