Bild Architecture are problem solvers, providing unique sustainable solutions for our clients.

We believe our primary role is working with clients to discover what is driving your project, what it’s ‘problem’ is, and then tackle this head on to develop a unique solution that meets the needs of our clients. Good design is not about fashion, or a surface treatment, but about deeply investigating any given task; using the unique convergence of client, site and brief as a springboard for design innovation. Our process is interactive and consultative – we believe that to meet the needs of a client with innovation requires diligence and consultation.

Our Philosophy

Fuzzy Thinking

Design thinking is non-linear, our key skill and the real value of our services are to take often competing interests (budget, scope, council or heritage restrictions) and generate a solution that not only addresses these requirements but transcends them.

We don’t have a ‘style’

We think that every project deserves fresh eyes, and a dedicated approach. We don’t have a formula or standardised aesthetic. Our work is not about us, it is about the unique qualities of each project speaking through the finished work.

We specialise in design solutions, not a building type

We have experience across a very broad range of design, from master planning institutional buildings, new and renovation residential projects, interiors and product design. Our key staff have in depth experience within Australia and internationally, across many building types and design challenges. Allowing us to draw on a high level of technical and practical project experience for a wide range of design solutions.

Sustainability is integral, not an add-on

We wholeheartedly believe that we have a responsibility both to our clients and to the community to minimise the environmental impact of all our projects. We approach sustainability from the outset of every project to integrate simple, economic and yet effective design strategies to minimise environmental impact both during construction/manufacture and the whole life of our projects.


We have a vested interest in the successful delivery of your project on time and on budget. We understand that careful cost management is essential in meeting your expectations for a successful project.
