desire to contribute positively to cities and suburbs

As a full service studio, the practice offers services in Architectural Design, Urban Design, Interior Design, Construction Drawings and Contract Administration.

Epignotects-AD’s  projects are a reflection of high quality design and  a desire to contribute positively to the cities and suburbs in which we live.


Our humanist approach to space and spatial planning elevates architecture and interiors beyond built form with consideration for site context and a desire to enhance the way our buildings are experienced in the tropics.


A sense of proportion is achieved by finding balance between objects and spaces. This effortless sense of harmony is essential for liveability . and often reveals itself when balance is lost.


Access to natural light is essential in creating liveable buildings. With immense power to impact emotion and a feeling of well being.


The human condition is to be one with nature one express this connection both in the way a building responds to site , and in the relationship between the indoors and outdoors .
