Architectus acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples as Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we live and work.

We honour their unique cultural and spiritual relationships to the land, waters, sky, and communities and their rich contribution to society.

Architectus specialises in the use of computational design technologies that lead to sophisticated and compelling design outcomes.

Computational design

Drawing on visual and written programming environments, our designers have the power to explore complex, mathematically underpinned geometry, as well as analyse, optimise, and simulate solutions through digital models.

A sub-sector of our digital team focuses on computation, regularly experimenting with and introducing new technologies to our practice and projects.

Data-driven design

We produce data-rich models for each project – information that can enhance the other work we do.

The computational technology, data sources and databases we incorporate into projects help us generate more valuable data for current and future designs.

For example, by understanding how people move through a space (see image below) we can finetune our designs to keep traffic flowing.

Environmentally Sustainable Design

As a practice and as designers, we need the latest environment-focused technologies and platforms to verify and justify our decisions and meet sustainability commitments.

We regularly run simulations on our design models to give clients confidence their projects can minimise environmental impacts and maximise benefits for the built environment.


Architecture projects often involve large sets of deliverables and the generation and management of vast amounts of data. We develop and apply a variety of technology and BIM automation solutions to ensure our teams work effectively and avoid repetitive tasks with a risk of error that a computer could otherwise solve.
