We provide Advice, Design, Documentation and Visualisations for your project.
TTA Studio Architects is focused on delivering a tailored service for our clients whilst aiming to maintain a high degree of design.
We believe architecture as a profession is a craft and that the outcome of architecture is a form of expression not only for its function or aesthetics but can also be a powerful language informing time, context, values and purpose. In a development the uses may change through time or be redeveloped for new possibilities. Architecture can be considered as the layers which define a location or city that is constantly evolving with new opportunities.
Our work ethos can be described as energetic with a practical approach whilst astute at problem-solving. We embrace change and new technologies in the work we produce, using these technologies to assist illustrate our ideas to our clients.
Put simply, We love all things design.
We love what we do.
And we do it with passion.
Our approach aims to primarily address our client’s brief. This is achieved through listening, understanding, defining before developing a design outcome. We understand each project comes with varying complexities and parameters from site-specific, planning controls and the client’s own requirements. We therefore encourage a collaborative approach with builders, consultants, approval authorities and most importantly the client in order to achieve a successful outcome.
The design aims to take into account function, practicality, sustainability, aesthetics and respond to the location, planning controls and the client’s brief.
Our approach also aims to incorporate the following;
- respond to nature and the surrounding environment;
- configuration & connection of rooms/spaces; and
- materials, textures, colours and light.

Review approval conditions and preparing documentation for a Construction Certificate Application.
A set of documents that are used to go to market to obtain a quote from builders for your project.
A set of documents to enable the construction of the building.
We can help administor a contract between the client and the selected builder.
Our process is flexible that adapts, evolves and responds to your needs. It is the streamlined result of past experience in designing buildings for our clients.
We set priorities, investigate, gather information, and understand the brief that will inform a tailored service. You will have a better understanding of the process for your project and what it will cost to prepare documents for approval.
Once we are approved to proceed, we test your brief against information gathered, planning controls and work up a design solution for you. This process involves close communication between you and our creative team. We begin by creating a concept design for your review and feedback.
There are many things that make up a building, so collaboration plays an important aspect of any project.
Working with other expert consultants so that input are considered and we all work towards the same goal.
With technology moving very fast we can prepare traditional physical models to visualisations or 3d renderings to help you visualise the design before it gets built. This can reduce delays and save money for changes if they were incurred otherwise during construction.
With the schematic design approved by the client, the team fine tunes, add notes and content to the drawings and documentation for sign-off prior to submission.
All the documentation are gathered and submitted for assessment. We can monitor on the progress of the application and if required, assist with providing additional information or address council questions regarding the design.
