It begins with great design.
We believe that design lies at the heart of every successful project. Beyond simple aesthetics, design builds around the way we live and the way we use spaces, and it looks to the future. It brings together functionality, sustainability and value, and turns great projects into great investments.
Our approach unites people with places.
The building blocks are our State’s intrinsic natural gifts – its climate, spectacular views, beautiful local materials and abundant light. Our process brings all of these elements together in a way which makes the design uniquely Western Australian, and unique to your project.
Shelter and freedom. Light and energy. Water and air.
In architecture, as in ecology, sustainability is a balance of life’s essential elements. It’s new thinking around timeless principles, and it’s built into every Chindarsi design.
Chindarsi Architects is a boutique architectural practice which specialises in contemporary, innovative, and functional design solutions which incorporate environmentally sustainable design principles. We bring over 20 years of expertise to our work, which encompasses single and multi-residential, commercial and public sector projects.
Our team offers a wide range of disciplines to each project, bringing unique and often unconventional insights into play. We take great pride in the relationships we build with our clients, many of whom return to us for future projects.
