Atelier for complementary architecture

The atelier

First established in 1998 in Prague and since 2005 in Australia, the atelier delivers architecture that is contextual, endemic to its region, generous to its occupants and neighbours, sustainable and resilient.

Our other activities include research, expert witness services and humanitarian work.


We design buildings that are elegant, climate responsive, resilient, healthy, selfless, functional, contextual and regionally appropriate.
