Practice Name

Carr Design Group









Carr is a multi-skilled firm of architects and interior designers. The practice was founded by Sue Carr in 1971. In this time Carr has established itself as one of Australia’s leading architecture and interior design firms having demonstrated a capacity to push conventional boundaries.

This success owes much to the outstanding results we have achieved for clients through the combined energy, focus and commitment of the Carr team. This includes senior associates, designers, architects and support staff from a diversity of backgrounds.

We are dedicated to designing buildings and spaces that minimise environmental impact and optimise energy efficiency. Equally, with accuracy, efficiency and cost-effectiveness as key outcomes, Carr’s commitment to information technology places us squarely at the forefront of developments in this area.

Our projects, located throughout Australia, New Zealand, US and China, range from private residences to large mixed-use developments including commercial projects, resorts and hotels.
