About

Bureau of Urban Architecture is 24 hours a day architectural practice that operates from our Sydney offices in Darlinghurst NSW and we have world-class 3D design and documentation capability and capacity. We have a strong focus on place-making, sustainability and architecture which connects with the spirit of place.

This design approach pervades everything we do as a firm. As a result we also have a focus on large scale and complex urban renewal projects involving residential, commercial, retail and mixed use buildings. We have worked on many important large scale urban renewal projects in Sydney such as Jackson Landing, the Olympic Village, Sydney Olympic Park Commercial Precinct and Rhodes Waterside. We are experts in residential, commercial and retail architecture and have a number of exciting and current projects through Sydney including Castle Hill, Crows Nest, Kensington, Gordon, Rockdale, Rydalmere, Parramatta.

Our firm is committed to the practice of architecture and the development of architectural theory which advances meaningful relationships between architecture, people and place through sustainable environmental design. We see both our strategic and creative role as architects acting as interventionists in three fundamental ways. Firstly, to create built form and open space in affinitive way to connect to, enhance and amplify the positive pre-existing conditions that constitute a spirit of place. Secondly, to create built form and open space by introducing transformational and opportunistic design elements that redefine and progress the spirit of place into its future condition. Thirdly, through rigorous research of building typology we pursue innovation of building types on every level of architecture possible to define the built form, materials, function and space. In the pursuit of new architectural possibilities for people and place all our projects are extremely diverse and we are as excited as our clients as to where our creative process leads us with each new commission.
