Practice Profile

Practice Name

Russell and George









Russell and George was created through the merger of the multi-award winning businesses of Ryan Russell and Byron George Architects in 2010.

The goal of the practice is to create design solutions that extend thresholds and blur the line between different fields of design practice. This creates a dialogue between people and the places they inhabit and engage with. In this way, interiors become urban design schemes, industrial design works become art pieces, architecture as industrial design pieces.

We treat every space as a unique opportunity to reveal the hidden personalities and goals of our clients and/or their businesses. This is a fairly eclectic and sometimes difficult approach but it is one that constantly reinvigorates and reinvents our design view and process.
