“We only want to do good work with good people, so we try not to be typology-specific. We
just look at who you are, what you are about, what are you trying to do with your life, with the
world? And if we align in our philosophies, then that’s a great opportunity to make good
architecture, good projects.”
- interview Collective Hub Magazine, 2016

Where do you find inspiration for studio/? Are there any local sources of Inspiration?
Plenty. Everything is an inspiration if you’re open to circumstance and ask the right questions. But, local specificity is the current thing. I’m particularly interested in what makes Perth, Perth. No more borrowing from elsewhere. Everything we need is right here.
What do you think makes working in Western Australia unique?
Simply, the isolation. It creates a kinship that I haven’t seen elsewhere. A sense of, ’we’re all in this together; so be nice, help each other out, and celebrate everybody's successes’.
There’s no other way.
What kind of projects is your studio known for?
Ha. No idea! We try to do everything. It’d be way too boring, for our clients, but more so, for us, if we had a predominant style or a native typology.
What should we expect to see from you in the future?
We’ve got a bunch of houses about to hit site. Which is lovely and weird because we were mainly doing urban and commercial work 18 months ago.
What is the soundtrack to your studio?
