We are a Melbourne based Architecture practice who design homes enriching to inhabit and sensitive to our clients' needs and aspirations.



Our approach to every project is to strive for a poetic experience of place - with deliberate precision we strive for an architecture that suspends time and moves our hearts. 

Our designs aspire to sustainability in design - architecture that limits itself to an indispensable number of elements, precise, logical and simple, yet richly connected to it's context and our client's way of living.


Custom designing, planning and building your home is an exciting journey that takes great commitment. Below is an outline of the steps we would be taking together as we design your home. We seek to establish a close collaborative relationship with our clients and lead them through a process that is meant to be fun and engaging.  It involves sketches and drawings, lots of ideas, both good + bad, that eventually come together through a lot of analysis and good humour.

"My partner and I couldn’t be happier with our newly renovated house, thanks to Atelier 1:7. Steven was wonderful to work with. He was responsive and flexible, and always client focused. The depth of his experience, design skill and creativity was evident throughout the project, and the finished product is truly breathtaking. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Steven to friends, family, colleagues."
