John Wardle Architects

Wardle is internationally renowned for making extraordinary buildings and places that matter. Through open dialogue and rigorous exploration, they work collaboratively with clients to realise the full potential of each project.

JWA is a collective of many minds and diverse voices. Architects, designers, inventors, and makers — their creativity takes on many forms and they discover opportunities in the most unlikely places. Impassioned by our culture of curiosity and inventiveness, they are deeply interested in learning from cultures, crafts, histories, and technologies. From studios in Melbourne and Sydney, they work across Australia and internationally on projects of all scales, from the intimate to the expansive. 

Their design philosophy has evolved over time under the leadership of Founding Partner, John Wardle, and with the commitment and imagination of the broader Partner group: Meaghan Dwyer, James Loder, Mathew van Kooy and Jasmin Williamson.
