Architecture Republic is a young, award-winning studio specialising in environmentally-aware Australian design. We have offices in Bowral, NSW and Canberra, ACT, but we also serve the Southern Highlands, Goulburn, Sydney and all of rural NSW. We're passionate about architecture, sustainability and beautiful Australian spaces.
We draw inspiration from large vibrant cities and historic country towns alike. It's a privilege to experience the world the way we do, stepping into the homes of people across NSW and helping them to create architecture. Our goal is to equip Australia's homes and businesses for the future. Our passion for sustainability and green design underscores all of our design thinking.
From initial concepts (there's always more than one) to finished product, we strive to keep our feet on the ground. We enjoy creating practical solutions for both large and small budgets.
We have a talented network of professionals, consultants, designers, and draftspeople who make the perfect team to move smoothly through the design, approval and construction process.
Here's what we do:
Sketch design - Let us help you brainstorm or critique your design; getting the basics right at the start can make a huge difference. We use a back-and-forth collaborative process with all our clients in order to develop a floorplan that works with lifestyle, aesthetics and budget.
Design and documentation for Development Application - Our drawings are tailored to satisfy your local Council/ACTPLA requirements.
Plans, sections, elevations, shadow diagrams, BASIX/ACTHERS compliance drawings - We can provide everything you need for you to submit your own Development Application to Council/ACTPLA, including advice on who else you'll need to talk to and our assistance through every step of the process.
Full specification - Exactly what you want in your home, specified to the letter. Make sure you have the products, finishes and details to make it truly your home. We can specify the latest and best in green techniques, products and technology.
Engagement of consultants - We have an established network of engineers, surveyors, BASIX/ACTHERS assessors, builders, etc. We can talk to the other consultants you'll need to get your design just right.
Full Development Application administration - We can liaise with Council/ACTPLA, engage the consultants and submit the application on your behalf. After that, all you have to do is choose your builder.
Tendering - We have a great network of builders who frequently work on our projects. With your consultation, we will organise and compare quotes from a variety of builders and trades.
Contract Administration - We can act as your agent on site in all dealings with the builder and trades. We can organise progress payments, ensure the contract is being fulfilled by all parties and resolve any issues that come up during the build.
