The work of Daniel Gibbs Architects intends to be propositional, and interested in understanding the nature of human life through built form. This is our primary interest and each project is approached from this point of view to help engender projects, and as such spaces, that allow the inhabitants to have a more real connection with the world in which they live.
We also see light as harnessing rich potential for our ability to understand the spaces we inhabit and as such we use this as a primary medium in the work that we do.
We are also inherently Australian in our approach. This is a unique land in which we find ourselves and as such there exists a need to understand what this place is and what it is to exist in such a land.
Daniel Gibbs Architects has experience over a number of different project types, including but not limited to small scale residential homes and extensions, multi-residential apartments, master-planning, retail design, hospitality design and large scale, high end residential projects.
The personal approach that Daniel brings to each project allows each project to be designed as a unique work, in-tune with client desires and budget constraints, but also the needs of site, environment and sustainability.
We also engage in competitions in order to keep our design thinking active and propositional, and Daniel also teaches in Architecture at both Deakin University and Monash University.
