Our multidisciplinary practice works across all areas of life - creating places for people to work, inhabit, study, linger, heal, shelter, move through, hide, eat, gather, explore, play and talk.
We are a dynamic grouping of diverse individuals with a strong culture of collaboration: there are almost 200 of us, from many different countries and backgrounds. Ideas and processes from architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, urban design and masterplanning cross-pollinate in our studios.
Through our briefing processes, we go deep. The more we understand your current and future needs, the more we can generate insightful and innovative architectural responses. We find a shared language that enables us to respond to client needs with integrity and understanding and respond to projects with clarity and quality. Our project teams are handpicked from our unique interdisciplinary and specialist studio clusters to meet the needs of projects.
We explore sustainable futures for the built environment and the contextual social fabric through material use, design strategies, inhabitation practices, management and a wider engagement with the environment. Our ESD statement reinforces this commitment.
Imagination is for everyone. By asking, listening, thinking and imagining, we get better results for current and future needs of the world we live in. We address contemporary use, environments and societal shifts across time. While we have received much official recognition of our work, it is even more rewarding to know that our work remains relevant for people who experience it, both now and into the future.
Our professional research supports all of our projects and leads the way in contemporary design practice. This includes in-depth and systematic research initiatives within design software, design processes, knowledge sharing, sustainable processes, building and construction initiatives.
In 1963 four architects formed JASMaD – a team which grew as fast as it won NZIA awards for excellent architecture. JASMaD later developed into JASMAX Architects and, in turn, Jasmax. Over more than forty years we have evolved into one of Australasia’s leading architectural firms, supported by the strength of our professional and client relationships and defined by our collaborative design expertise.
