Team Me up Scotty
We are a collaborative Architecture and Design studio with offices in Adelaide and Melbourne. Since 1989 we have translated the wants and needs of people into spaces and structures that benefit us all.
At Tectvs we adopt the integrated design - or studio-based approach to projects - encompassing urban design, architecture and interior design. This holistic perspective has yielded design solutions that often exceed the expectations of our clients. Our projects have been awarded numerous times during our years of practice.
We define ourselves not only by our work, but also by the people who make the designs a reality. The thing about architecture is that walls will one day need repainting and bricks will eventually crumble. What truly lasts is the relationships that are built with both clients and the community. We believe in creating relationships as much as Architecture. Tectvs is a community based on specific values and responsibilities. We are here to inspire each other, challenge each other, inform and teach each other, respect each other. More than two decades on, the founding directors are still hands-on designers.
We believe in creating a sense of place - for creating spaces where people make moments happen and where lives are shared. Architecture is making a building, good architecture is making place. It isn’t meant to only look nice; it’s meant to make you feel something. As agents of creation in the built world we believe that Architects can be judged by their work decades and even centuries after its completion. This can be a mixed blessing if there are no records linking the finished product to the circumstances surrounding its beginnings - intent and outcome are often only distantly related. Visual evidence is a valid starting point for assessment. We offer this website as being indicative of our work.
