Aardvarc is a Brisbane-based architectural practice located in the heart of West End.

The Aardvarc Approach

At Aardvarc, we’re driven by a love of nature and an appreciation for practical and personal design. Whether applied to residential, multi-residential, commercial or retail projects, we approach design using novel ideas, and both new and used materials, in order to produce environmentally conscious and meaningful architecture.  We respect our Clients’ most valuable resources – time and money, and seek to preserve these finite commodities.  Instead of design for design’s sake, we believe that the best design is shaped through collaboration between everyone involved, all working towards a common goal.


We provide a range of services from planning to completion of a project. These include design and documentation, development applications, construction, on-site consultation services, in-house consultation services and in-house seminars.
