We care about your project as if it were our own.

We sweat the small things, so you don’t have to.

And we take care of everything from interpreting council rules to making sure everything runs smoothly on-site. We know what needs to happen, when it needs to happen and how to get it done right.

We’ll run the project for you—it’s like working with an architect and a project manager. At once.

Our team is easy to work with. We’re a rare blend of qualified, highly skilled, passionate architects, who genuinely care about what we do and who we do it for. 

Public Design architectural layout

With 15+ years of experience, we have a knack for designing complex multi-residential buildings. This experience can’t be taught, it’s built over time and sets us apart from the rest.

So if you’re looking for a dime a dozen draftsperson. Or a building designer with zero qualifications. You’re in the wrong place.

We understand your reputation and brand matters.

We understand time equals money.

We understand great design increases market value.

It’s our job to make sure your project goes the way you planned.

We’re not your usual architects. We don’t apparently “listen”, but keep designing the way we want. We aren’t precious when it comes to our designs. And we’re not chasing architectural awards. We understand good design but we also understand what drives development and costs.

And we take the time to understand what you really want. This combined with good judgement and interpretation skills means you know exactly what to expect from the start.

Let us help you pull everything together—in a cost-effective, hassle-free way.

What we believe…

Working with an Architect
// 01 We believe in working with people we like —
because it means we get the best results. That’s why we like working with property developers who enjoy collaborating and value good design. (We don’t like working with big egos, corner-cutters, or penny-chasers who’ll do anything for a buck!).

// 02 We believe architecture goes beyond simply drawing plans, it’s about creating spaces that people want to live in.
We want our designs to add real value for the building occupants, in terms of money and quality of life. We create comfortable spaces in which people can live in a way that exactly suits their needs and lifestyle.

// 03 We believe true “green” design can’t be bolted (or painted) on later

It’s inherent in every design decision.

// 04 We believe complex projects present a problem-solving opportunity.
Finding solutions for difficult sites, complex buildings or briefs excites us. (It means we can flex our creative-thinking muscles!).

Townhouses design
Mixed Commercial and residentual apartment design
// 05 We believe in remaining open-minded throughout the entire process.
The best solutions can arise from the most unexpected places.
// 06 We believe that big is not always better.

Quite often, less is more.

“I’ve worked with the Couvaras team for over 15 years on lots of different projects. The team has had a massive impact on our business. They create developments we’re proud of. And their work and quality is second-to-none—
this makes selling the apartments a lot easier for us.”

— John

“Peter and the team run rings around every other architecture firm out there. They not only have great design outcomes, but are very adept at project management. They are always available and very responsive—the speed at which they work is incredible. They are worth every dollar!”

— Daniel
