About the
Professional

Who we are

106 Architects has a work-model that emphasises collaboration, prototyping and testing. We love to get close to our end-users to understand their needs and challenges. To do this we shape our internal team based diversity and skills we can all learn from.  We value people who have an attitude for ‘skin in the game’ thinking, who can test and challenge ways of doing things. 

What we do

Architecture has the capability to inspire and connect people. Through a design-led and collaborative approach, 106 Architects build a specific team for each project. A clear point of difference is in our design, consultation and delivery tools.

We build relationships before buildings.

The connections we nurture with our clients underpin the success of our designs – designs, Third Place Thinking™, that harmoniously bring together aesthetics, sustainability, functionality, on-going operations and budgets, with the wider social, cultural and commercial interests.
