About us

We are an innovative, professional architectural practice committed to achieving design excellence for all our projects. Brenchley Architects is not founded on ego. We believe successful architecture is a collaborative effort of both client and architect.
The client is as much a member of the design team as the architect. Our design approach is based on producing architecture that will stand the test of time. Time, cost and quality are the foundation points for all our work.
We design specifically for the project at hand. Our designs respond to the local environs, site, and brief. We constantly search for opportunities to innovate with building materials and typologies. Brenchley Architects strive to incorporate all facets of an ecologically sustainable architecture into our designs.
Julian Brenchley Principal Architect

Julian Brenchley was born in Canberra in 1967, and studied philosophy at Sydney University, and finally architecture at the University of Technology NSW where he graduated in 1994 with Honours. The fundamental design approach is one of 'reading' the built environment as a series of codified forms that are too rarely associated to function.

Julian aims to create design solutions that are exciting, dynamic and accessible. Julian Brenchley has been both lecturer and tutor at the University of Technology in Design Theory, as well as undertaking post graduate research projects in design philosophy. Julian Brenchley is a Registered Architect in New South Wales, Victoria and the ACT. When not at work Julian is trying to get the kids away from the TV or sailing, or both.
