Architects with a difference

We are Platform

Not your average Architecture Firm

We want to remove all the fear, heartache and pain that goes with new home and renovation design. In order to do this we connect with the best local architecture talent and we work with a system of deliverables so that we are cost effective.

We are redefining the world of home design!

We believe in a strong research approach to design, meaning we investigate and analyse the design ‘problem’ from 3 angles:

  • financial

  • legal and spatial

  • your individual needs
