Practice Summary

TYPOLOGY Architecture, established in 2017, is a boutique practice located in Page, Canberra. Our specialist architectural services serve the Australian Capital Territory. We also serve the NSW South Coast and the NSW Southern Tablelands.

We specialise in considered, contemporary with a focus on place and site-sensitivity. The practice has a specific interest in residential projects. We have extensive experience in both new houses and alterations and additions / extensions to existing houses. We also have extensive experience in multi-unit housing, master planning, commercial and community projects.

TYPOLOGY Architecture employs a rigorous focus on conceptual thinking, quality design and the delivery of comprehensive design and construction documentation.

Philosophy

Our work mainly focuses on creating contemporary and considered works that provide a strong and integrated connection with site or place. The core ethos of the practice is that all sites and places yield certain experiences for people. Architecture, at all scales, should attempt to interpret these experiences and provide spaces and forms that are integrated with these experiences.

In both all projects, we expertly balance the economic realities and imperatives of contemporary architecture with a phenomenologically sound approach of ‘telling the story’ of a place. Our approach can enable clients to gain an edge in an ever-increasing competitive industry, and in an ever-diligent community, where the overall success of a project can be measured by its ‘completeness’ and its ‘appropriateness’ to its place.
