Statkus Architecture is a young and energetic architectural practice focused on considered, engaging and sustainable outcomes, established in 2008.
We are a little firm based in Northcote comprising a small, close working team enjoying the satisfaction that comes with enquiry and rigour and the pleasures of seeing discussions and ideas turn into drawings, into construction sites and into finished buildings.
Most of our current and recent work has been small and medium sized home renovations and extensions, multi residential developments along with local government, retail, hospitality and community projects.
In our architecture our interest lies in how we can provide a balanced project outcome that converses with the existing building, landscape and urban condition while undergoing a process that results in emergent and unique design outcomes that respond to the myriad of affecting factors that arise in these projects.
We are currently working on residential projects within inner Melbourne and beyond.
Statkus Architecture enjoys engagement with the wider community through voluntary work, architectural and urban competitions, interviews and public art commissions, often collaborating with those outside of the discipline of architecture.
In 2015 our 'Northcote Mohawk' house was awarded the People's Choice Award in the 2015 Architeam Awards and our 'Considered Something' house was shortlisted in the alterations & additions category of the 2015 Architeam awards.
In 2013 we were joint winners of the Architeam Awards in the Community category for the Eco Cubby project.
In 2011, we worked with 3 & 4 year old kindergarten children and staff at Swinburne Prahran Community Children's Co-Operative in Windsor taking part in the 2011 Arts Victoria Eco Cubby project.
In 2010, we were delighted to have been selected as one of 17 teams to exhibit in the 2010 Venice Architecture Biennale in the "Now and When" exhibition.
Our work seeks to invite, wonder, maximize, minimize, question, assess, encourage, participate and speculate.
