Adriano Pupilli Architects

Based in Sydney and the South Coast of NSW, we work with a range of clients around the country, from home-owners to commercial and government clients and community organisations. We operate across a wide range of sectors, and have extensive experience designing at micro and macro levels.

We have specialist expertise in creating:

  • inviting residential spaces, from contemporary new homes to space-savvy rear extensions and upstairs additions
  • respectful architecture in heritage conservation areas
  • robust and secure buildings in bushfire risk areas
  • flexible and socially engaging places to work, co-work, learn, create art, and think differently
  • inspired public buildings and spaces that draw people in and engage the senses
  • hospitality spaces and guest accommodation that provide a sensorial experience and inspire connection with place
  • varied, efficient, and personalised multi-residential development.

Great architecture, built on solid beliefs and firm values

Our team believes great architecture should evolve out of the culture of the places we work. It should be functional yet experiential, robust yet refined, and thoughtful yet simple.

We believe in quality design that promotes healthy, happy and safe living environments.

We are committed to innovative and sustainable architectural solutions, and bring these concepts to our work through passive solar design, Ecologically Sustainable Development (ESD) principles, and minimalism.

We love the inherent beauty of raw materials, the logic of fabrication, and how things go together – and embed these elements in our architecture.
