design focus

Harris Architects conforms to no single style. We treat each project as a unique fusion of client and place, a balance between the underlying potential of a building or site, and the interests of the new inhabitants.

While our design strategies adapt to each project, our work is characterised by open, flexible, sun-lit spaces connecting intelligently between interior and exterior; imaginative spatial organisation to fit the needs and aspirations of contemporary life; and determination to work creatively with context and place.

We believe design develops best through dialogue. We encourage our clients to actively engage throughout the design process, taking part in the crucial stages of creating a new building.
