Welcome to my blog. I am Bob Croft the Principal of Croft Architects and I am a sole practitioner working predominantly in the Brisbane area.
My blog is to provide insight for those who may not have worked with an architect before – to reveal the benefits of working with an architect.
For those who have previously enjoyed the benefits of an architect, I offer long experience in providing functional, sustainable and design longevity. I think you will still find material in the blogs that will be useful.
I started my practice in 1994 after many years working in large commercial practices. Since that time, I have focused on residential work in and around the Brisbane area. I was born, raised and educated here and know the people, geography, climate and lifestyle intimately.
I hope to cover a variety of topics like sustainability, interpreting the city plan, designing for small or otherwise difficult sites, master planning for a lifetime of use through your various phases of life, responding to climatic influences and simplifying functionality. I will also cover the processes of selecting builders and building processes.
