About Us

Established in 1998, BDA is a mid-sized award winning architectural practice based on the Gold Coast, Australia and Selangor, Malaysia. We are a youthful and enthusiastic practice who like to look beyond the known and explore new ideas. We have an international reputation for design quality, environmental awareness and innovation.

The practice maintains three studios - Urban Design, Architecture and Interiors. Our approach is to ensure a consistent and integrated design vision from the ‘big picture’ to the architectural built form and associated interiors.

Our design studio has extensive experience over a range of design typologies. Our work ranges from small scale individual dwellings to large scale master planning projects. We are highly experienced in medium to high density residential, mixed-use, retail, commercial and specialise in marinas, integrated waterfront developments & golf resort developments, transit oriented developments, airport design and master planning, residential communities and new townships.

BDA has led urban design and architectural projects throughout Australia, China, Malaysia, Taiwan, Papua New Guinea and New Zealand. Our team of highly skilled and versatile designers have considerable experience in reducing the most complex and demanding briefs to their essential elements. The varied vocabulary of work reflects receptiveness to the specific physical and cultural context. We ensure the best international practice for design is coupled with innovative design, sustainability and cultural understanding. The practice has been involved in urban design and architectural design of golf course residential and resort developments. BDA has led high profile residential, mixed-use and TOD master planning and architectural projects throughout the east coast of Australia and abroad.

Over time, BDA has established a close working relationship with Local Authorities and have a clear understanding of local design and development issues within the region.
BDA was selected to participate in the Australian Pavillion at Heat Architecture Exhibition at the Shanghai World Expo 2010 and trade mission in Shanghai, China in 2011.
