FAQ

Atelier for architecture and urbanism

Do you take on new work?

We are able to take on an interesting new commission at most times.

What are your fees?

Our fees are based on industry-average percentage of the projected cost of construction: 7-14% for full architectural services, 3.5-7% for design-only services.

Do you offer internships or work experience?

We can not offer internships or work experience but we mentor aspiring architects.

Do you have photos of finished projects?

No, generally speaking, for the following 3 reasons:

  1. Most of our work comes to us by referral from existing clients, which means we can spend our time on actual work rather than marketing.
  2. We find it unhelpful to create an impression or expectation of a specific design style: our designs reflect our clients’ individual needs and wishes.
  3. Most of our work is residential and our clients’ respected private domain. We don’t ask clients to take and publish photos of their homes.

Our public work may be found in 3rd party literature or visited.

Can you give a talk/interview/write an article?

Usually we welcome the opportunity.

Do you work interstate or internationally?

We work on projects across Australia, Europe, SE Asia and Oceania, occasionally also co-operating with local jurisdiction consultants.

Do you take on projects pro bono?

Depending on your circumstances we are able to reduce or waive our fees.
