Workshop Architecture was founded in 2008 by James Staughton and Tony Styant-Browne. Tony has recently stepped down as director (now a consultant within the practice), whilst Simon Whibley (formerly of Simon Whibley Architecture) has joined Workshop Architecture as co-director.
Comprising a staff of 10 we are a vibrant architectural, interior design and urban design practice. We have an established reputation for an innovative, interactive design process for both public and private sector clients, where the design solution emerges from a shared vision. We are committed to intelligent strategic design, to the principles of environmental sustainability, to positive client and consultant relationships and to the effective delivery of our projects. It is on these principles that the mutual design and development aspirations of each project are built. We are dedicated to a contemporary position in architecture, along with a commitment to the craft of architecture and how the well crafted building, resulting from the intelligent and inventive use of materials, may embody the aspirations of each individual project.
Our receipt to date, of 8 AIA Architecture Awards, the Victorian Premier’s Sustainability Award for design, a Silver Award in the Japanese Commercial Design Awards, various industry awards and recognition by the Architects Registration Board of Victoria for excellence in the delivery of architectural services, are testament to these qualities.
