Maddison Architects was established in 1989, and is recognised as a multi-disciplined practice of significant design and delivery credentials.

We are an A+ member of the Australian Institute of Architects.  Dozens of industry awards and strong media coverage has followed our practice because of the relevant, contemporary nature of the work we produce.  We have delivered over 200 projects of great diversity in scale.  The work undertaken has been predominantly hospitality, commercial, educational or residential in nature.  Our hospitality projects have distinguished the practice, because of their commercial viability and profile.  We are proud to have many of our clients return for ongoing or new projects.  This is due to their satisfaction with the service we provide and the healthy relationship nurtured.

A unique aspect of Maddison Architects is our ability to integrate a multi-disciplined approach to all of our projects, drawing on strong in-house resources involving architecture, interior and landscape architecture.  We are a collaborative practice, and embrace the opportunity to engage with other experts in branding, identity, art installations, storytelling - all of which contribute to building outcomes with more meaning.

Good design considers the environmental impact of architecture as mandatory, not an optional extra.

In each project, Maddison Architects strives to create buildings that integrate superior energy and environmental performance.  Environmental sustainability using passive design principles complemented with appropriate active systems are integrated into our practice from a project's conception through to construction 

Our office has an in-house database of "Green Guidelines" with a focus on materials, ESD strategies and architectural precedence.  The database is regularly updated to keep abreast of ESD advances.  Our A+ architectural institute membership puts the national "Environmental Design Guide" papers at our fingertips.  We believe a big contribution can be made to sustainable buildings simply by sound passive design and limiting the size of buildings to their real need.

The process of architecture is one of collaboration. A specific team is built around each project, so the right expertise is in place.

After twenty years of practise, we have established good working relationships with many specialist consultants and builders. We also love to collaborate with graphic designers, sculptors and other artists to further enrich the building outcome.
