The Practice

Our focus is on people & places, to create value-adding, sustainable solutions for our clients, residents, suburbs and cities alike.

Founded in 2010 by Managing Director, Chahid Kairouz, the practice was formed from humble beginnings, and has since grown to encompass a strong, diverse team of individuals, who each bring with them their own unique story & experience.

Now with 3 studios in Melbourne & Victoria – our Geelong, Thornbury & Glen Iris offices have completed close to 800 projects to our name. We have an industry reputation for excellence and ‘hands on’ service to continually deliver a variety of commercial, multi-residential, and bespoke home projects throughout Australia.

Well-known for our award-winning work in urban development, in 2019, WH Architects joined the team as a collaborative partner bringing a wealth of experience under the guidance of Founder & Director Wojciech Huczek. Wojciech’s 30+ years experience brought a unique response and dedicated professionalism to our projects, in particular commercial and industrial developments.
