Those Architects

We are Those Architects. Architecture studio with offices in Byron Bay and Sydney, Australia. Bringing together creativity and knowledge, we believe in thoughtful enquiry into the reciprocal relationship between architecture, broader social context, landscape and the environment.

Simon Addinall
Co-founder & Director
B.Design, B.Arch
NSW Registered Architect No. 8420

Underpinning Simon’s approach is the relationship between climate and landscape as the defining elements in how a structure is conceived and designed. This applies to both commerce projects and bespoke housing.

What’s really important, apart from rigorous design, are the connections between inside and out, and how we use materials. Whether you’re designing a coastal house, a country residence or a city home, the same broad principles apply, it’s just that different climates and sites will invite different responses.

Simon explores the relationship between climate, landscape and people.

Apart from rigorous design, what’s crucial are the connections between indoors and out, and how we use materials to strengthen those connections.

Ben Mitchell
Co-founder & Director
B.Design, B.Arch (Hons)
NSW Registered Architect No. 8787

We design both for how a space makes you feel, and for how it works. Every site, no matter where it is, offers opportunities to make a building that lifts the spirit, and works for the people who live there. Finding those unique opportunities is what drives us as architects.

Ben’s approach to architecture is shaped by a love of nature and a curiosity about cities, as well as the similarities and differences between the two. Ben is an invited guest lecturer and critic at professional forums and schools of architecture.

Ben is informed by an understanding nature and has a curated approach to the design process.

We design for how a space makes you feel, as well as how it looks and functions. In every site there are opportunities to make a special building that lifts the spirit.

Those Architects have transformed a small, inter-war semi detached Sydney house into a light-filled home for a young family.
