Office

 

Archer Office is an integrated design practice operating within the fields of architecture, urbanism, interior design and product development.

Recent projects span a diverse range of programs and include: an entertainment precinct and public square in Melbourne for QIC, a pair of retail pavilions within a public square for Lend Lease, a village of 118 houses and community centre overlooking Lake Macquarie, a masterplan and upgrades to Belvoir Street Theatre, an interior pavilion at Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation, several private residences, and furniture pieces developed with manufacturers in Australia and Europe.

We believe that excellent design outcomes emerge from a collaborative approach, whereby clients and the project team work together to develop a shared understanding of the problem to inform a robust architectural response. It is through this iterative process of analysis and production that new and unforeseen outcomes are borne.

Archer Office is prequalified under the NSW Government Architect’s Strategy and Design Excellence Scheme, and was selected by Wallpaper magazine in the UK for their annual Architects Directory in 2016, as one of 20 emerging practices to watch from around the world.
