We are passionate about enhancing the urban environment, and ultimately people’s lives, through the practice and experience of the design process and its outcomes.
We take as much pleasure in the process of creating architectural and landscape solutions as we do in the built outcome. We build relationships with clients through listening, collaboration and a shared enjoyment of the design process. Our work is not driven by a defined aesthetic, we prefer to tailor solutions to the site context and our clients’ needs. We are motivated by the challenge of avoiding waste during design, construction and throughout the lifetime of the completed project. Schored creates outcomes that make people feel comfortable, uplifted and connected to their surroundings.
As a practice we have a strong remit to pursue a social agenda and regularly contribute our knowledge and skills to charitable and pro-bono projects.
Schored Projects are proud to be actively participating in reconciliation with our Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander peoples and to that end we’ve had our first Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan endorsed by Reconciliation Australia. Please download a copy here
