dKO Architecture is one of Australia’s leading innovative design practices specialising in Urban Design, Architecture and Interior Design.
Established in 2000, with offices in Melbourne and Sydney and with staff in excess of 70, the practice has developed its reputation from extensive experience in the exploration of residential design. Undertaking projects throughout Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia, dKO Architecture is highly regarded and awarded in all areas of architecture.
Being clever with space is where we enjoy ourselves and set our ideas free. Our ground breaking and award winning work has concepts blurring outside and inside spaces. We pride ourselves on creating efficient spaces and spaces that are exciting to experience. We create innovative and appropriate designs and believe that form should follow function. Innovation, vision and pioneering new approaches and techniques are the key to each and every project. We are interested in the relationship between people and their environment and consistently push the boundaries of urban design.
We are interested in revolutionary design advancements in sustainable, contextually sensitive, low energy and low environmental impact buildings. Somehow this always enhances their beauty.
All our buildings are considered with the inhabitant as well as the environment in mind. We analyse how people live and recreate and this informs our interior architecture. We believe this process to be integral and holistic from the outset. We love interior architecture and the opportunities created.
Integrating with dKO Architecture, dKO Interiors has been guided by a philosophy of creating a sense of place: well designed and filled with drama, elegance and delight. A seamless continuation of the design service is provided throughout every facet of a project’s evolution. The same level of rigorous design and technical expertise is applied to interior projects as seen on architectural projects.
We are committed to creating projects that have the highest quality, style and sensory appeal that in turn provide a unique sense of place and occasion.
dKO is proud of its commitment to the design and delivery of medium and high density residential developments.
With 76 The Esplanade, dKO has conceived a series of apartments that showcases our passion for the delivery of sustainable communities while affording fabulous amenity for residents. The planning of internal and external living spaces is given particular attention as the integration of these precincts is an integral aspect of Australian living. Each apartment is designed to bring the views and landscape right into your living space while not impacting on privacy.
The result is an energy efficient, design-driven project – a place where balance has been achieved between the natural and built environment.
