Our architecture is designing wellness into wonderful spatial experiences for the occupants. We deliver returns for the developer.

"We design the layout & stretch your canvas.

You design your life of wellness, prosperity and spatial experiences in the built forms we will both love." - Swarup

Design Objectives Of Whole Building Design

We believe in the Whole Building Design model.


To achieve a truly successful holistic project, the following  design objectives are  considered in concert and in balance with each other:

  • Accessible: Pertains to building elements, heights and clearances implemented to address the specific needs of disabled people.

  • Aesthetics: Pertains to the physical appearance and image of building elements and spaces as well as the integrated design process.

  • Cost-Effective: Pertains to selecting building elements on the basis of life-cycle costs (weighing options during concepts, design development, and value engineering) as well as basic cost estimating and budget control.

  • Functional/Operational: Pertains to functional programming—spatial needs and requirements, system performance as well as durability and efficient maintenance of building elements.

  • Historic Preservation: Pertains to specific actions within a historic district or affecting a historic building whereby building elements and strategies are classifiable into one of the four approaches: preservation, rehabilitation, restoration, or reconstruction.

  • Productive: Pertains to occupants' well-being—physical and psychological comfort—including building elements such as air distribution, lighting, workspaces, systems, and technology.

  • Secure/Safe: Pertains to the physical protection of occupants and assets from man-made and natural hazards.

  • Sustainable: Pertains to environmental performance of building elements and strategies.

Adaptive ReUse

Swarup, AuArchitecture's  Founder managed the whole industrial project from planning approvals to demolition of the 6000sqm site and then handing over the completed Business Park to its new owners- the likes of Australian Customs, Bendon and others.

Nicole Kidman- then lesser known-  used the partly demolished building as a backdrop to one of her earlier movies!

AuArchitecture will gladly donate  design and planning services  to charitable organisations worldwide. 

We would love to serve you through smart and beautiful  designs for your dream house, dual occupancy, townhouse or apartment projects or commercial and industrial buildings which makes  a difference.

I recall doing a

  • large multi unit  residential design with a sky-street on the fifth level for the kids to play in safety while  creating  a real sense of community living and  

  • a modular home design which grew with the family budget rather like a series of plug in components and 

  • the windmill house with views where each stair landing led to a different view and function and

  • right down to designing and obtaining planning permits for practical traditional designs to meet the family  or developer's budget and objectives.

Our Founder has  worked on hundreds of development sites for dual occupancy and townhouses. He worked on commercial, health, education, retail and leisure projects to name a few other disciplines.

Our professional designs are flexible to suit your vision and realistic to meet your budget.

We advise you must seek legal and financial advice prior to making a commitment on any property development venture. The opinions we provide are general in nature.
