Practice Profile

We design buildings for living and learning.

KO&CoArchitecture is a Brisbane based architecture and design practice with a keen interest in all aspects of residential and educational design. Established in 2013, we pride ourselves in creating beautifully crafted, high end homes, clever design solutions for small additions and alterations, efficient responses for affordable and social housing and welcoming environments for public and educational buildings. We cater for clients who have a shared passion for design and those who are interested in the difference good design can make to a space.

Each client has a unique brief which is deserving of a unique, considered and exceptional response. Each site has its own opportunities and constraints which need to be explored and exploited. Regardless of the project type, scale or budget, good design starts with consideration of first principle space planning. The site’s environmental conditions, views, opportunities and constraints should influence the fundamentals of the design. If these fundamental principles are embedded into the design from the initial space planning stage, the built outcome will be a worthy investment into lifestyle and an enjoyable place to live, work and play.

KO&CoArchitecture has ISO9001 quality assurance certification and is an AIA A+ practice. KO&Co architecture also holds pre-qualified consultant status with the Queensland Government and BHC Ltd.
