We are well known for creating a wide diversity of architecture that reflects each particular client’s collective aspirations and unique place in the world.

We will work for you by listening and analysing what you need, and creating an intelligent design resolution that is crafted, focused and enduring.

 WHO WE ARE

Harmer Architecture is an established architecture and interior design practice that works in Melbourne and Regional Victoria.

Created by the Principal and Design Director Philip Harmer, we are a team of architects led by the Principal, senior associate Andrew Briant and associate Jonathan Hadiprawira.

Harmer Architecture is recognised in Melbourne as a high calibre design team backed up with decades of experience in delivering high quality construction documentation and skilled technical expertise during construction.

 

 WHAT WE DO

Harmer Architecture provides a range of services from early project masterplanning, design brief formulation and feasibility studies, through to design resolution and construction documentation.

We provide construction stage services, oversight of construction and management of quality cost and time.

We work with specialist consultants early in the project planning phase including health planning, heritage advisors, education planning, and quantity surveyors to help clients define project scope and likely costs.

 WHERE WE WORK

We work in a beautiful office studio in Collingwood that we designed ourselves and shown on this page.

We are committed design professionals who therefore practice what we preach.

We have created an outstanding workplace that is an exemplar in environmental sustainability. Check out the details of the Harmer Studio in Projects under the heading Workplace.

Please contact us to arrange a visit to the Harmer Studio. Not only is the architecture outstanding, so is the coffee.
