Practice Profile

Architects Designhaus
Melbourne
Architects Designhaus is a contemporary architectural practice created by its Directors Richard Crawford, Andrew Shurman and John Padas to promote a ‘studio ethic’ in design, with a high standard of commitment to clients and strong technical bias towards the construction industry. This ethic continues the practice of architecture which has lasted 150 years since the establishment of the practice by Henry Hunter, but permits all offices to develop their own design focus in a collaborative studio atmosphere. The diversity of projects undertaken by Architects Designhaus varies from the small, boutique domestic scale project, to large developments and everything in between. Such diversity maintains our interest within all fields of design and construction, ensures technical relevance and helps the studio atmosphere maintain a high level of energy and design excellence. We celebrate the joy of creating and chaperone our clients through the process in order to achieve a high level of satisfaction.
