For more than 30 years, CohenLeigh Architects has realised hundreds of projects across Australia – from houses to high-rise towers, schools to libraries, workplaces to urban design. It is this experience that transforms ideas into realities.
Established in 1987 (formerly Dale Cohen Architects) the office is led by Dale Cohen, Clementine Leigh & Ben Cohen.
With over 30 years’ experience, our practice has built a reputation for innovation & design excellence with the aim of making a valuable contribution to the life of our clients & the built environment.
Our practice has an extensive & award winning portfolio of built work that includes residential, multi-residential, commercial & more recently, public realm projects. We have long-standing repeat clients who appreciate the value we bring to their projects.
Put simply, we’re inspired by doing great work with great people.
Sustainability isn’t just a buzzword for us; it forms the foundation of everything we do. We believe that intelligent architecture is sustainable architecture. From the word go, we strive for our buildings to have a positive environmental and cultural impact.
We use low embodied materials and passive solar design wherever possible to reduce building running and maintenance costs. We work with our clients to suggest opportunities for long-term environmental benefits over short-term cost-savings.
We focus on the incorporation of practical and affordable integrated sustainable design features that harness natural light, fresh air and relationship with landscape.
We measure the success of our buildings by their positive social, environmental & economic outcomes.
