our practice & our team
Established by Matt Cooper in 2000, Aspect Architecture is an intentionally small, efficient, and people orientated practice situated only metres from the beautiful beaches of Kingscliff in Northern NSW. Composed of architects and architectural graduates, we’re a friendly, focused, and experienced tight-knit group who work in urban, suburban, regional, and rural contexts. Our completed work includes house renovations, new houses, attached housing, apartment complexes, commercial fit-outs, master planning, and feasibility studies. We collaborate closely with our wide network clients, associated designers, planners, engineers, and builders to achieve exemplary outcomes.
We believe that architecture plays a fundamental role in the way we experience place, and thus life. We reject architecture for architectures sake and focus on the creation of spaces that are beautiful, unique and function in a personable way, meaning that each project responds meaningfully to its setting and occupants. We value craftmanship, collaboration, creativity, responsiveness, and open dialogue alongside a spirit of communication and collaboration. We strive for socially and environmentally sustainable designs that benefit both our clients and the broader community, whilst aiming to explore and build upon rare opportunities and remarkable ideas in everyday settings.
As architects, we are uniquely positioned to contribute to every stage of the design process, from conception to completion. We strive to engage with enthusiastic clients who respect the value of the design process and create an open and friendly work environment where architect-client relationships can flourish, ultimately enriching people’s lives through the creation of considered and exceptional architecture.
If you would like to know more about us, our work or any part of the architectural process please just give us a phone call- we are more than happy to answer any questions.
