Architecture practice seeking to expand people’s freedom to use, adapt and live in space as they see fit.

We offer down to earth proposals that explore ways of orienting ourselves within our changing environments – to make the most with what we’ve got. This is a grounded approach that values learnt understandings of culture and context – gained through observation of the everyday.

We acknoledge the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people, the traditional owners of the land we inhabit, and extend this respect to all first nations people.

Lisa Garner, RAIA, Co-Founder

Spanning architecture practice and research, Lisa has gained experience at leading studios and institutions in both Melbourne and Berlin. After graduating from Universität Der Künste, Berlin she worked for practices such as RaumlaborBerlin and Robertneun on award winning projects ranging from higher density housing to urban interventions. Lisa returned to Australia after winning Aecom’s 2018 International sustainability competition with a proposal for an alternative housing prototype for Melbourne’s middle ring suburbs. This work has shaped her passion for confronting the challenges of medium density housing in an Australian context in order to improve their environmental and social performance. Lisa is a registered architect with the ARB-V.
