Kerry Phelan Design Office




Level 3, 7 Alfred Place, Melbourne





Favouring a collaborative design approach, which extends from the office structure through to client involvement, KPDO espouses the theory of emotional design: a soulful, responsive exploration of ideas, rather than a static design methodology. This is expressed through a strong architectural aesthetic, with intelligent, practical resolution of contextual problems, resulting in warm and versatile spaces that reveal themselves gradually. Considered planning, and sensitive but rigorous detailing, underpin each project with a subtle clarity.
