In 2019 we started a collaborative and creative design laboratory where talented designers could work together on meaningful community projects.




The studio was founded on the belief that every local community should have access to well designed civic spaces and public buildings that not only bring people together but inspire a sense of pride, ownership  and belonging.



Our aim is to bring smart design thinking to every project so that we can create beautiful places that are inspiring, thoughtful, inclusive and engaging. In doing so we hope to promote the value of good public and civic design and to fundamentally improve the quality and character of the suburbs, towns and cities across Australia.


Our studio is built on a culture of openness and transparency -  we are always open to opportunities, new ideas, collaborative partnerships and honest discussions.
