Studio

With two offices in the Asia-Pacific region, Studio Design + Architecture is an award-winning multi-disciplinary creative powerhouse that creates inspiring spaces and places that really work, all around the world.

SD+A was founded by Michael O’Brian, our principal architect, and Niki Harrison, our principal designer as a practice committed to deep collaboration with clients, progressive design approaches and a wide-ranging creative synthesis of ideas, brought to life through innovative technologies.

We work across the full scope of design and architectural practice, from high-end residential and luxury hospitality, to cultural, commercial, workplace, healthcare and project master-planning. Our specialisation lies in being able to translate the needs of a wide range of stakeholders into outstanding buildings and interiors that eloquently answer all the commercial, social and human demands put upon them.

Sustainability has long been built into our ethos, at all scales and budgets. As active members of the New Zealand and Australian Green Building Councils, with in-house Green Star accredited professionals, we know how to work with clients and consultant teams to integrate sustainable design without compromising budgets.

At heart, Studio Design + Architecture is a passionate, hands-on team of design experts. Wef love to make responsive spaces that perform commercially, empower and inspire everyone who lives, works and plays in them, and add significance and beauty to the built and natural environments. On time, and on budget, of course.
