URBAN SOLUTIONS ARCHITECTS
Established in 1996, Urban Solutions Architects is a small, client focused practice located in Ashgrove, Brisbane. We specialise in residential design for individual residences as well as multi-unit dwellings, providing architectural services to home owners, builders and property developers. We service all areas of Brisbane and South East Queensland.
The practice has provided services on projects ranging in size from carports & deck additions to multi-million dollar residential projects and we’ve been fortunate to work in locations from Noosa to Sydney.
The experience gained over the past 30 years working closely with builders and developers in Brisbane and South-east Queensland has established the ability to deliver practical, cost effective design solutions whilst maintaining a high level of design integrity.
We have extensive experience in designing to maximise a site’s potential within the constraints of local planning codes and in guiding projects through the Development Approval process.
We pride ourselves on the fact that our clients return to us for project after project and that many of our new clients are referred to us by existing satisfied clients.
