Clients I'm Seeking:


We are looking for adventurous residential and commercial clients for custom housing projects, small developments, as well as retail and hospitality fitouts. We are also interested in talking to larger organisations about urban design and masterplanning work, as well as forming design consultant partnerships on larger scale projects.

About My Business:


INDEX architecture is a Melbourne based architecture, design and urbanism practice led by John Doyle and Laura Mártires. As a studio group INDEX is committed to pursuing architecture as a form of applied design research, and is engaged in a number of projects of varying scales and in differing contexts. This has included large scale urban, cultural and commercial competitions and speculative projects, as well as individual houses, interior fitouts, exhibitions and installations. Each project is considered as an opportunity to develop a unique design solution regardless of the projects scale or scope. The studio employs a bottom up approach to architecture and urbanism. Design work always proceeds from a rigorous investigation of the project pre-conditions. Parameters based on the brief, site, social and economic context are extracted and employed to generate rule based design systems which use the requirements of the project as the generating force behind the design. An index is a device that simply identifies and directs you to other information. Architecture and urban design projects are broad undertakings which encompass large numbers of people and resources. As an office INDEX openly embraces the collaborative nature of this work and therefore our studio ethos and identity are defined simply as an INDEX of the projects in which we have been involved.
