We are a Melbourne-based Architecture practice. We work across a diverse scale and typology in Architecture, Interior Design and Sustainability. Our projects include family residential dwellings, high-density residential, and public and commercial buildings. We complement this service with our sister company Agency for Design Strategy where we focus on Urban Design and Master Planning.
Not only do we believe in creating beautiful Architecture, but what we bring to the table is a holistic outlook on what needs to be done, and why. As an Upstream practice, we identify the forces that impact a project from the early stages of the project. By working collaboratively with clients and communities, we create buildings that work well on every level, inside and out.
Our ideas are grounded in understanding context, client brief and user experience so that the buildings we design are meaningful and contribute positively to people's lives. As Architects and Urban Designers, we know how to bring forward the experiential attributes that make a place memorable and attractive.
We strongly believe that multi-disciplinary integration and strategic thinking create projects with a strong vision and multi-generational value.
