Architectus ranked top Australasian practice
World Architecture rates Architectus top Australasian practice
Architectus is the highest placed Australasian practice in the 2019 World Architecture Top 100, ranked 43rd overall in the annual survey of the world’s largest practices by UK-based Building Design.
The report said, “New entrant Architectus goes straight to the top of the Australasia rankings. The Australian practice combines 400 architects, interior architects, urban designers and urban planners in seven offices across Australia and New Zealand including a new office in Perth.” Architectus ranked in the top 10 architecture practices in the market sectors of ‘office’ (4th) and ‘master planning’ (10th). The rankings are based on a survey of more than 1000 of the world’s largest practices.
Architectus’ growth has been driven by projects in the commercial, workplace, education and rail infrastructure sectors, including office towers Wynyard Place, in association with Make Architects, Barrack Place and 100 Mount Street, several large workplace project appointments, the Sydney Metro City and Southwest in association with Foster + Partners with the METRON consortium, the soon to be completed Canberra Metro, and appointment as technical advisor to Rail Projects Victoria for the Victorian Rail Infrastructure Program (VRIP), and several projects including for Macquarie University and the Victorian Government through the Victorian Growth Area Schools Project.
“Following a successful year of growth for Architectus, including expansion to Perth, the launch of the Urban Design and Planning team in Melbourne and appointment of nine Principals in 2018, we are very proud to be ranked as the top Australasian design studio in the WA100 and within the top 50 practices globally,” Architectus Managing Director Ray Brown said.
“The achievement is a testament to the remarkable work of our talented team and senior leadership, trusted by clients to deliver distinct community-shaping places within the commercial, education, interiors, public, residential, transport, urban design and planning sectors.”
“While it’s an honour to be recognised globally, our greatest privilege is being able to shape our clients’ projects. We thrive off pushing the boundaries of each brief to consistently deliver complex projects, unique to individual context, community and location.”
The data for the rankings and tables was gathered by UK communications agency Camargue on behalf of BD. Details and listings are the results of a survey sent out to over 1,000 architecture practices worldwide in October 2018.
