“Realizing & Delivering innovative urban environment.”
PTW is an architecture and interior design practice whose purpose is to improve people’s lives by making better places. Their team works together with their clients and collaborators to bridge cultures and transform cities. They are specialists in large-scale, complex projects across sports infrastructure, residential and mixed-use, hospitality and interiors, integrated communities, and education. They work across Australia and Asia, bringing together their team’s creativity, skills, and the latest technology to combine a strong understanding of local context with the best of global architecture.
PTW has a proud legacy as a founding member of the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) in 2002 and maintains an active, ongoing membership. As Australia’s authority on sustainable buildings, communities, and cities, PTW is guided by the GBCA vision to lead the sustainable transformation of Australia’s built environment, create healthy, resilient, and positive places for people and the natural environment.
They believe that design must embody sustainability in its widest sense – social/cultural, economic, and environmental. The thoughtful resolution of the unique and carefully researched aspects of place, program, and context can create architecture that optimistically guides us towards our future: the advancement of technology, the protection of the environment, and quality of life.
Their technology capability allows:
- analysis of sustainability concept with 3D tools
- production of images and videos for natural light and ventilation, thermal site impacts, acoustic performance impacts, right to light analysis, sightlines and view analysis.
PTW Architects has a dedicated information technology team to provide network support across our local and international practices. Their project team includes specialists in building information modeling, computational design, and real-time visualization to provide customized input to projects. Their teams can utilize a wide range of design tools to develop their design concepts using Sketchup, Rhino, 3dsmax, and Revit applications. Their design process includes physical models, both 3d printings, and the craft of traditional model techniques. Their design documentation derives from BIM models produced primarily on Autodesk Revit. They centralize their component libraries to provide efficient updates across the practices. The design team selects suitable processes tailored to building performance design needs to optimize economic, social, and environmental sustainability.
They are enriched by their highly diverse team, which exceeds the 40:40:20 targets throughout every level of the practice (including 50% female directors). They are proudly progressing through the ‘reflect’ phase of our Reconciliation Action Plan with Reconciliation Australia and benefit from their Indigenous team members and industry engagement. Their teams bring together renowned experts in a culture of collaboration driving innovation and excellence. Also, they embrace diversity. They celebrate their differences. And they embrace the opportunities that come from layering different points of view.
