Our Practice

R Architecture is an Australian architecture practice with a passion for bringing great design to suburban contexts.

We work hard to understand your requirements and share your aspirations. By demonstrating a willingness to listen and collaborate, being accountable and solutions focused, we aim to build a strong, trusting relationship as we guide you through the design and construction process.

Our approach to design is really flexible to your preferences and budget. We don’t pursue a particular style or aesthetic. The only thing we insist on is a great design outcome.

While our project work is diverse, every project delivers on our clients’ dreams and makes an exemplary contribution to the community.

If you are passionate about creating buildings and spaces that are meaningful, practical, and engaging: R Architecture is for you.

OUR STORY

Gaurav and Vishakha Rajadhyax founded R Architecture in 2011. Both had previously worked in large commercial practices in Sydney and Melbourne and were seeking greater flexibility as they raised their growing family.

They wondered whether they could bring the design acumen they had learned on large civic and commercial projects to smaller scale suburban projects, and in so-doing contribute to improving access to great design and improve the impact of urban development in suburban contexts.

Since then, they have grown from strength-to-strength, nurturing a capable team that works collaboratively to develop solutions for clients. There are no “starchitects” at R Architecture.

Their approach has resulted in a cohesive and tight-knit team who are collectively focused on creating great experiences and outcomes for their clients.

In 2021, R Architecture celebrates its 10 year anniversary and commences its next chapter as the practice expands into the Sydney and Adelaide market.
