Sydney-based Chris Elliott Architects, established in 1992, are committed to the opportunities provided by new technologies whilst respectful of the natural and heritage qualities of place.
Their work includes residential, public and commercial projects, with a special interest in larger scale architectural and urban design. CEA projects range from new houses to master plans, compact terrace extensions to commercial fit outs, and art galleries to parks and amenities.
CEA believes the layering of different periods in a city, rather than replacement of the old with the singular statement, generates richness and beauty in built form.
A careful appraisal of the client’s requirements and the adaptation of these to the particularities of the site – climate, topography and history – generates innovative solutions.
Elliott is known for his ongoing experiments to bring light and air into mass.
