Archipelago believes in social and civic transformation + improvement through the execution of good design. By observing, questioning + problem solving, we believe we can create the cities of our dreams.

Archipelago are award-winning designers. We believe that all projects have the potential for excellence, regardless of scale, scope or budget, and that a thoughtful and considered design process is the key to unlocking this value.

Our in-house, integrated multidisciplinary teams develop our client partner’s project aspirations collaboratively through an evidence based design approach that unifies the commercial, social and economic imperatives of the project — through shared visions that are both creative and pragmatic.
