It is with great pleasure that I introduce the first edition of the Archiworks newsletter.
Creating great Architecture is at the heart of our services and I am so proud of the quality of projects across the studio this year so far. From beautiful houses, to large mix use developments to enriching public spaces, each project tells incredible stories engaging with “People, Nature and Architecture”. A very special thank you to the staff and suppliers at Archiworks, despite the challenges your care and attention to detail have pushed to create real positive outcomes.
As we come out of lockdown in Melbourne in 2022, the local market conditions have remained strong and busy. From consultants, authorities, contractors and suppliers, many are adjusting to increase demand. There are delays in materials shortages, supplies storages and over this period an increase in construction prices. We found that now is a good time to consolidate or start projects while the supply chain and demand stabilises and to use this time for preparation.
With projects in construction, we found there are creative ways to tackle shortages by substituting with Australian made materials and adopting efficient construction processes.
We have noticed a continued growth in renovation, townhouse developments, industrial developments, mix use and an increase in the retail sector. We think this reflects a need for space and an interesting re-think in the relationship between work and living.
