H2o architects provides a full range of services with a strong focus on responsive architecture, unique interior design and intelligent urban planning.
Established in 1999 by Tim Hurburgh and Mark O’Dwyer, H2o architects has received international acclaim for its modernist sensibility teamed with a highly responsive architectural approach. The culmination of these two has resulted in highly memorable and individual land marks which are sympathetic to existing environments.
In our fourteen years of operation we have pursued an architecture of expressive modernism across projects of varied typologies and scales. We believe in the intrinsic value of place, landscapes, artifacts and existing structures and pay particular attention to the accretion of the attributes when formulating our design approach. A situational response to unique characteristics of program, site and context has resulted in highly individual buildings with unusual and evocative forms, dynamic materiality and colourful materials and textures. Intense client collaboration ensures holistic, expansive outcomes fostering stake holder commitment. Through a commitment to sustainable design which is practical and affordable, we strive to reduce the impact of our architecture on the environment.
