Architects and Specifiers - Port Douglas, QLD
CWA is an architectural practice committed to providing design excellence in everything we do, big or small.
CWA considers designing a collaborative process. Working closely with stakeholders, consultants and contractors we procure projects that fulfil and exceed expectations. With a hands on proactive leadership team who oversee the whole design and construction process from workshops / master planning through to detailed documentation we deliver on time and on budget.
Architecture faces a number of future challenges when expressing and responding to the ever changing environment both from a climatic perspective and technological advancements. Through Collaborating with engineers and specialist consultants CWA helps to realise the clients aspirational goals for these challenges by implementing strategies early in the design process.
Our approach to design and integration of our ESD strategies have acquired CWA a unique recognition in Tropical Architecture with a number of world class buildings. These striking buildings including the Cairns Botanic Gardens Visitors Centre and the Stamp House not only demonstrate a concise understanding of the extreme yet sensitive climatic conditions of the tropics, but are an embodiment of our approach in seeking innovative and inspiring outcomes.
The firm has also undertaken a number of other commissions broadening the skill set including large single + multi residential developments in Melbourne both conceptual and under construction. Projects of note include 14 townhouses in Northcote, Master planning + yield studies for a $35m apartment complex in Moonee Ponds and master planning feasibility design study appraisals in South Morang for 400+ apartment / mix use development. CWA has also been recently engaged as Principal Consultant / Architect for the Kyneton hospital redevelopment in regional Victoria.
As a national and international design practice, CWA is committed to constant research and development in all projects undertaken. We seek to innovate, inspire and deliver exemplar world class architecture across a range of scales that express and respond both climatically and culturally to our built environment.
