We listen, then create.

We consider all influencing factors on every piece of work – the project, the environment, the location, the user. We adapt our approach in whatever means we must, from small edits to sweeping changes.


We are passionate about considering the built form in the context of the community in which it will be immersed. Every project presents different opportunities, but critically, our approach to masterplanning embraces your vision and takes full advantage of your site.

We have undertaken a number of significant masterplanned communities, drawing together seniors living, childcare, healthcare, sports, fitness, retail, entertainment and environment to achieve unique sets of drivers.

Seniors Living

Our portfolio of senior’s design work showcases our ability to adapt our thinking and develop fresh concepts for seniors living communities. Our work is informed by effective operational design, which empowers providers, enables staff, and delivers excellent amenity for residents.


Our residential development work spans independent residential for the design-conscious and larger commercial projects that deliver strong returns for investors and developers. Designs reflect the hallmarks of VIA’s design approach: collaboration, conversation, and a deep understanding of the end user.

We specialise in increasing yield on tight sites, and enhancing comfort and aesthetic appeal through considered interior architecture.


Via Architects specialises in designing spaces for learning across all stages of the lifecycle, from childcare centres and primary schools, to secondary schools and colleges. We even prioritise learning later in life, with studios and activity centres in seniors living precincts.

Commercial Development

From new commercial buildings, to base build upgrades and workplaces, VIA’s studio team have extensive experience designing to position assets for your market.

Medical / Health

The highly technical work required in the design and construction of specialist medical facilities requires attention to detail, and an appreciation of process and programming to stage construction with minimal impact on day-to-day operations. Our designs aim to create a calm, comfortable, integrated experience for staff, patients and family.

With the rise of employee wellness initiatives in the workplace, VIA’s expertise in the commercial sector encompasses innovative end-of-trip zones that mimic health facilities.

Retail / Hospitality

Our retail-led mixed-use portfolios include high-rise commercial and residential buildings, thoughtful conversions of historic buildings and high-density urban schemes.

We work across all aspects of retail design, including large scale holistic master planning, strategic retail planning, tenant advisory and fit-out, wayfinding and signage, full architectural and interior design and design and development of long-term asset solutions.
