‘Our practice seeks to provide sensitive, creative and innovative solutions to problems and opportunities in the built environment.’ – Daryl Jackson
Established in Melbourne in 1964, Jackson Architecture is a national practice with studios in Melbourne, Canberra and affiliated offices in Brisbane, Fiji and Perth.
An interdisciplinary design practice of professional architects, masterplanners, urban, and interior designers, the practice is motivated by the desire to provide sensitive and stimulating environments that articulate and facilitate all aspects of human encounter and endeavor.
Jackson Architecture has gained an international reputation for providing high quality architectural and related services based on an ability to synthesise the conflicting demands of creativity, community planning, cost effectiveness and quality design.
Public and peer recognition of the quality of Jackson Architecture has resulted in numerous awards, including the prestigious Sir Zelman Cowen Award (the Australian national award for the most outstanding architectural work) on three occasions and an RAIA Gold Medal.
‘Architecture is a problem solving discipline to which our diverse talents and knowledge contribute – philosophic and technical; caring and sensible; imaginative and operational…Each project is unique and demands an exceptional response. The result is functional and symbolic, conveying the idiosyncrasies of the complex parts through an ordered and synthesised whole.’ - Daryl Jackson
In a democratic society, architecture is a social art. It must encompass and transcend aesthetic and formal concerns to reinforce, enhance and celebrate people’s emotional, behavioral and functional needs. Furthermore, the architect has obligation to generate new ideas and visions that facilitate cultural expression and anticipate future use. Our designs are authoritative and collaborative, definitive and distinguished.
The enduring values at Jackson Architecture, established by founder Daryl Jackson, continue to guide our approach.
We are committed to:
Our process is one of leadership: we reveal, explore, conciliate and express the diverse and often contradictory demands of client and user group whilst considering community interests and statutory obligations.
We place great emphasis on developing close and cooperative relationships with our clients.
We apply our technical and professional knowledge to deliver value, and exceed the aspirations, objectives, and quality expectations of our clients.
We believe our proven ability, intelligent design responses and collaborative team approach make us ideally suited to provide successful architectural outcomes.
The result is an architecture of many architectures, using functional and symbolic systems of expression to convey the idiosyncrasies of the complex parts through an ordered and synthesised whole.
