New to Paterson Architects?
When selecting a new provider in any industry, it’s not unusual to be unsure about whether the business will be the right business for you, or whether they have what it takes to meet your needs. It’s the same when choosing an architect. So if you’re considering us, our human centred approach is designed to acknowledge what might be going on for you.
Over time, we’ve heard some of the below phrases as people seek reassurance that we can help and will get it right.
- Will they get what we’re trying to do?
- Do they have the experience in the field to work on my project?
- Will they get me?
- Will they actually listen?
With that in mind, we’d like to take a moment to share a few key points about Paterson Architects and what you’re likely to experience when you choose us.
Chasing high performance and precision?
We are driven by a strong sense of connection to our projects. Knowing we can meaningfully contribute to how users will interact with a space inspires everyone at Paterson Architects to deliver high performance with precision and purpose to every client we work with. For us, architecture is more than just designing a building. It's about providing a space for people to connect to. Whether it's on a community or business level or just something deep within, it should trigger an emotional human response.
Need multi-sector smarts?
At Paterson Architects we have over 40 years of experience under our belt (and some silly number that is too large to quote if we combined all our years work into one sum). We are also a member of the Property Council, Learning Environments and Green Building Council, and actively pursue the application of Environmental Sustainable Design in all projects.
Our work spans across the commercial, common-space and residential sectors. While we mainly focus on commercial work, we are honoured to say residential work comes as a result of commercial clients experiencing us, and wanting the same in their private lives. Across the commercial sectors, we have expertise, experience and smarts in:
- Recreation / Community
- Law and Order
- Health and Aged Care
- Residential / Multi Residential
- Mixed Use
We continue to be chosen for government work, where you’ll see our architectural work in local and state government buildings around Perth and across Western Australia.
Adding value in meaningful ways
We know it’s important to add value at every step of the journey. If you choose to meet with us, we know you’ll come with a list of functionalities required from the project. That’s great, and very useful. When we sit together we’ll be keen to get a vision of what you’re setting out to achieve, and ask you to have a go at naming the kinds of emotions you’d like the space to evoke (for instance, the space might need to be light, open and comfortable or dark, quiet and reflective).
We look forward to embarking on a journey together.
