Creating great Architecture is a journey. A journey of exploration, analysis, empathy, perception and intuition. It is a collaboration that develops an idea, a feeling or emotion, a need or a want, into an understandable and achievable brief.

That is only the beginning of the journey.

From concept to completion, Hume Architects can deliver the services and professionalism to bring realisation to those ideas. We have been doing it for over 25 years, but still turn up every day as though we are just starting out, with open minds, a willingness to learn, an empathy for each new project, and we trust that our experience will be informing all our future work, and that of our clients.

Our design is specific to the site, environment and individual client aspirations. Our ability to listen to both client and site, and to observe the environmental, physical, cultural and aspirational generators of our commissions result in astute and perceptive architecture that reflects a balance between inspirational design and experience delivers the most appropriate individual solution.

Collaboration in Architecture is fundamental and unavoidable. All Architecture is the product of creational and rational minds working together as a team, each playing a part to deliver an end product that is cohesive and seamless.

All our projects involve collaboration with other professionals, disciplines and Consultants and as Lead Consultants we are able to assemble the appropriate resources for each individual project. We have experience in managing projects from residential building contracts through to large and technically complex developments requiring specialist expertise and co-ordination.
