Newcastle Architects

An emotional feeling is usually the first place we begin when working on a project, a spark, an idea that really inspires you to create something incredible. We look at the environment in which a project will be located, and experience the environment around and within.

Views, sounds and that all-emotional “feeling” of a place then serve as the base of our inspiration.

Creating something special requires that level of emotional attachment. Adding value ensures that we have pride in our creations, being an architect is not a career, it’s a lifestyle choice. Passion fuels all of our designs, with the end goal constantly being in mind. Real effort and talent will work within your budget, this is ultimately what great design is.

In this section of our website, we hope we are able to give you a feeling for the diversity of our projects, and the creativity we bring. We do not have a signature house style. Every project we work on, we believe, is unique to our client and its environment. Behind each project lie a hundred and one other exciting ideas. If you want to be challenged, to think the unthinkable, to fulfil aspirations, please contact us and let’s explore possibilities.
