International expertise, local talent: Plus Architecture launches new Perth studio
Architecture and interior design practice Plus Architecture builds on the firm’s ongoing success with news it will officially launch its Perth studio this month.
The new studio will be led by local talent with major national and international project experience. The multi-disciplinary practice has already secured commissions from international developers who are passionate about delivering design-led, innovative mixed-use projects in Perth.
Plus’s Perth studio will be led by experienced local duo Will Schofield and Patric Przeradzki, whose intersecting expertise in a variety of sectors include masterplanning, education, aviation, civic, workplace, science, infrastructure, and multi-residential.
“There is a growing stability in the Perth market – developers and investors alike are seeing it for what it is – a city with great potential,” said Schofield.
“Both Patric and I are deeply passionate about this city. It’s not just our home – it’s a city with unique challenges and opportunities, and we are excited to play an active role in shaping its future.”
“Working with Plus gives us a fantastic opportunity to not only put our expertise to work, but also to leverage the resources and knowledge of an innovative, international firm,” added Przeradzki.
“We are also big believers in the Plus hands-on approach, with frontline director involvement in every project.”
Plus Architecture Director Craig Yelland said that launching the studio with Patric and Will at the helm was a no-brainer.
“It is often a challenge to find local talent to lead, design and deliver, together with a combination of complementary and new skills to expand Plus’s overall capability – we believe we have found that in Perth,” said Yelland.
“Both of these experienced leaders are committed to innovation, collaboration and delivering world class, commercially feasible design, which makes them a natural fit for Plus.”
Within the Australian and New Zealand markets, Plus Architecture has built out its portfolio with design, documentation and large-scale masterplanning work in the retirement, aged care and student accommodation sectors, as well as continuing to be sector leaders in mixed-used and multi-residential development.
“This is not just geographical expansion – we are actively recruiting passionate and brilliant people who add new knowledge and sector expertise to our portfolio,” said Yelland.
The international practice has proven just how robust it is – enduring a global financial crisis and politically charged planning environments.
In the space of two decades Plus Architecture has grown its director team to 11, staff to over 130, studios to six, geographical operations to five states across two countries, and has a current portfolio worth in excess of two billion dollars.
“Our clients benefit from having subject matter experts on the ground with them across Australia and New Zealand, as well as decades of cumulative knowledge and expertise,” added Yelland.
