About

Welcome to our award winning architectural and interior design practice.

Led by Craig South, our friendly professional team is dedicated to crafting for uniqueness and producing carefully considered architecture that will endure and be loved.

At South Architects, every project has a unique story. This story starts and ends with our clients, whose values and aspirations fundamentally empower and inspire our whole design process.

Working together with our clients is pivotal to how we operate and we share a passion for innovation in design.

We invite you to meet us and explore what we can do for you. As you will discover, our client focussed process is thorough, robust and responsive.

We see architecture as the culmination of a journey with you. As we get to know you, so we begin the design process that responds with creativity and flair to your ideas and requirements. Our journey together is also shaped by awareness of the environment and location, with all elements working harmoniously together to create beautiful and functional architecture.

We understand that the experience of designing a new home is a life changing journey and we seek to make the experience as stress-free and fun as possible by celebrating milestones along the way and keeping you well-informed on progress.
We look forward to meeting you, working alongside you and sharing in your journey.

“Architecture at its best is an expression of individuality, serving and supporting a unique way of life and designed for site and context.” Craig South

A new beginning, a new adventure

Every architectural journey starts with a conversation.
At our first meetings with you, we encourage you to ask questions about our processes, services and fees as we, in turn, begin getting to know you and your project.

Uniquely yours

Our concepts evolve from building an understanding of your way of life, your aspirations and lifestyle goals and then weaving your personalized story into the design. This is what lends our designs their special uniqueness.

As well as delivering your project’s architectural design, our specialised home interiors team can take care of all your home interior design requirements. Both inside and out, we design for functionality and flair to create a harmonious whole.

Connected to your world

We design homes that co-exist seamlessly with landscape, climate and environment, while also delivering year-round liveability, energy efficiency and comfort. Our bespoke architecture is designed to endure with grace and beauty.

Responsive and engaged

At every step in the journey, we keep you fully informed and updated. We find this takes the stress out of the process and means you can relax as your brief develops and comes to life. We can also assist you with putting measures in place to ensure your budget is well managed, with no unexpected surprises.

We think it is important to mark milestones along the way by, for example, sharing a glass of wine after the initial concept presentation or enjoying a lunch together to mark the beginning of a new phase.

Celebrating your home and your story

At journey’s end, when design and construction is complete, we look forward to celebrating together. We love taking the time to honour you and the realisation of your vision with unique, inspirational architecture.
