Social impact

We aim to make a positive impact through our support of community groups and initiatives. One of our key focus areas is reconciliation – and how to make it more tangible in our practice, our design process, and our built work.

Advancing reconciliation

At Architectus we are acutely aware that we design places and spaces that occupy the unceded lands of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and that these First Peoples maintain the greatest connection and knowledge of place.

We prioritise integrating reconciliation into our practice and design process by working together with First Nations designers and collaborators.

Our studios collaborated with Yindjibarndi artist Katie West to create a woven artwork, Moving Together, representing our Innovate RAP journey.

“Guided by artist Katie West, the act of making our Innovate RAP artwork was, for me, a deeply reflective process. The result is a potent and beautiful physical expression of our joint efforts and our commitment to forging true partnerships with First Nations peoples every chance we get.”

Philanthropic and pro bono work

Architectus supports a number of grassroots and not-for-profit organisations contributing to communities in Australia.

Our practice partners with the Property Industry Foundation, which builds housing for homeless youth around the country.

We also aim to strengthen communities by designing places like the Ruah Centre for Women and Children, Western Australia’s first safe, purpose-built centre of healing and health for women and children fleeing domestic violence.

The Ruah Centre for Women and Children in Perth provides support in homelessness, mental health and family violence.

Strengthening our industry

Architectus promotes and supports our industry through sponsorships and memberships with organisations such as the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat and the Green Building Council of Australia.

Our Student Hub and our contributions toward university programs such as graduate exhibitions foster the next generation of designers.
