In our first 50 years we’ve led and supported some of the most significant architectural achievements of their time. Quite simply, there is no other firm as engaged and interested in helping clients realize their vision and ambition.

We believe in well-built, high-performance, functional buildings that are able to reveal their spirit and character through deliberate, affirmative design. At AUB, architectural design is the practice of managing competing interests: finding balance between program and cost, performance and appearance, feasibility and schedule, ambition and pragmatism. Helping clients navigate dynamic, complex choices – between mindful efficiency and inspired creativity – leads to the creation of award-winning buildings and adjacent public spaces.

We believe all design programs benefit when we engage partners early, to define success with the full costs and considerations of development. This process is rich with candid conversations, thoughtful enquiry, attentive listening, and a sense of openness to new opportunity. Consequently, our approach is never impulsive. We intentionally design with respect for users, local culture, context, environment and budgets.

Importantly, we design with efficiency at the top of the agenda, ensuring the conservation of cost, time, process and environmental resources. By finding efficiency, we permit clients to invest wonderfully, in impact areas of development that pays a dividend to brand, to user experiences and for capital investors.
