Profile

EASTWEST ARCHITECTURE is a contemporary architecture, interior and product design practice. We are a conceptually driven practice offering Client’s turnkey tailored design. At the center of what we do is a passionate need for materiality, functional beauty, and continuity.

The project brief is built through the Client-Architect dialogue. This leads us to fully understand our Clients and their user lifestyles leading to a robust, resilient, and meticulously resolved solution.

As Lead Consultant our attitude is one of cooperation and collaboration within the team and with external consultants. We pride ourselves on being architects that connect both people and spaces.

The EASTWEST portfolio is local and international focusing on residential and hospitality sectors for private and commercial clients.

Approach

Think Big

We obsess about the details but we always keep our eye on the bigger picture.

By uniting the very best external consultants with our internal team, we have created watertight systems to ensure that our solutions are holistic and explore every avenue within the confines of the brief.

Empowering Clients

Working collaboratively with our clients is at the heart of what we do.

The team provides regular updates with clear information to help our clients make informed decisions at each stage of their project. This results in projects that truly reflect the client’s desires both aesthetically and functionally.

Private and Commercial Clients 

Each project has its own demanding brief, its own exacting requirements and its own unique solution.

Our portfolio demonstrates that our approach to each project is designed with fresh eyes and an open mind, which is why we wouldn’t say we fall into one specific sector. We have a wealth of experience in a number of sectors, from high-end residential, private and commercial to retail, and we’re always accepting new challenges.

Malleable Team

We establish an aggregate team of specialists for every project, giving us the ability to be flexible around the particulars of each brief. It also means that we can scale our responses accordingly, from smaller teams for residential work through to bigger teams for larger scale retail projects.

Inside Out

We approach projects holistically and offer a wide range of services under one roof.

Over and above architectural design, we also offer joinery and construction capabilities within our business. This allows us to manage and develop projects from beginning to end with a critical eye that takes all elements of a project into account.
