People x Place

We build architecture around a deep understanding of people, purpose, and place. With over two decades of experience in residential, commercial, healthcare, and urban design, SRH Architecture applies this philosophy to every project and recognises that collaboration with clients is key. Our designs are tailored to meet each project’s unique needs and objectives; the results are thoughtful and responsive to industry demands.



Our goal is to deliver optimal design solutions within any budget, all while prioritising exceptional client service. We recognise that today’s clients seek more than simplistic solutions. They require designs considering program requirements, site conditions, sustainability, contextual factors, and budget constraints. Our commitment lies in providing comprehensive and thoughtful designs that harmonise functionality, aesthetics, and the human experience.




Our interior design team brings a unique and innovative approach to each project, focusing on creating dynamic and functional spaces that enhance the overall design of the building. Working closely with our architects and engineers, we ensure that every detail is considered, from the layout and flow of the space to the selection of materials and finishes. Our expertise in interior design extends to a wide range of sectors, including commercial, hospitality, residential and healthcare.


Master Plan


With a deep understanding of the interplay between the natural and built environments, our master-planning capabilities extend across various project types and scales, including residential developments, commercial complexes, healthcare facilities, and the public domain.




SRH Architecture offers a comprehensive and integrated approach to design that goes beyond the scope of traditional architectural practices. By seamlessly merging structural and architectural expertise, we redefine what is possible in the built environment, creating spaces that inspire, endure, and elevate the human experience.



Innovative & Creative


Our innovative design approach and client focussed process has won us numerous industry awards, design awards and publications.


Our multi-disciplinary team of over 20 professional staff includes commercial architects, interior designers and structural engineers, focusing on bringing innovation and inspiration to the projects that they undertake.


Consultative & Collaborative


We work closely with Clients and Developers to understand development needs and ensure the project maximises return yield on key objectives. This includes meetings with relevant stakeholders to understand project expectations and operational and management requirements the design will need to consider.


Responsive & Context Driven


As a studio with an extensive breadth of national projects, we are committed to reflecting and responding to the local character of each project to ensure an architecture that contributes to a sense of place. We are committed to reflecting and responding to local and industry demands to meet expectations and demands authentically and meaningfully.


Multidisciplinary & Tailored


Our team brings together award-winning architects, interior designers, and structural engineers. We draw on the combined knowledge of the team to help deliver builds that are highly functional, accessible and development focussed.


Our studio has experience working on various projects, from small-scale residential to larger, more complex projects, including hospitals, mental healthcare facilities, commercial, industrial, and childcare. We are passionately engaged with each project and pride ourselves on taking a boutique approach to all our projects, offering individualised service and tailoring our offering to the needs of our clients.


Our Team

We believe that collaboration is the key to good design. Successful architecture is not the work of any individual, but the result of a collective effort that draws on the strengths and expertise of everyone involved.
