Alice's story

From the age of 10, Alice was fascinated by architecture. Despite her immigrant parents being concerned architecture was a male dominated industry, and even suggesting she become a lawyer or politician, her mind was made. Having grandparents that participated in the Warsaw Uprising in Nazi occupied Poland and surviving not one but three concentration camps, hard-work and tenacity is in her blood, and she wasn’t going to let a matter of gender stop her from pursuing her dream.

 

Alice studied architecture in Perth and Milan, graduating with a Bachelor of Environmental Design followed by a Master of Architecture with Honours at the University of Western Australia. Her educational experience gave her a foundational appreciation for beautiful and enduring design.

We don’t just design buildings, we design a way of living. Our unique brand of contemporary architecture is inspired by wellness, efficiency, quality and practicality.

 

Are you bored of bland and soulless architecture?

 

If you want a building that will leave a legacy of fostering health and prosperity, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s work together to make your vision a reality.

In 2015, Alice decided to trade the bustle of Perth for tranquil country living.  The magnetic allure of wide-open spaces, clean fresh air, green pastures and salty blue seas was too great to resist. This move enhanced her intuitive understanding of the psychology of spaces, materials, light and colours, and the powerful effect those elements have on mental health. This intuition illuminates her approach to design.

 

When Alice is not designing awe-inspiring buildings, she’s going on adventures in nature with her sons or travelling widely to expand her rich knowledge of international cultures and how it influences architecture (this includes, riding down Death Road in Bolivia). Her not-so-secret superpower is that she can memorise your entire house in just one visit. Like every superhero, Alice wants to make the world a better place and she does that through her passion for shaping the built environment to establish a strong sense of identity and purposefulness in the community.

The AO Architects' way

Be Well. Be Unique. It’s our modus operandi for life and design.

 

Architecture is a synergy of art and science but at AO Architects, we don’t stop there. We’re different because we deeply understand that the occupants of a built environment are just as important as the structure itself. We are:

INNOVATORS: we think outside the box to offer real, unique and practical solutions to all construction concerns.

ATTENTIVE: we listen and collaborate with you to build magnificent projects.

COPACETIC: when you work with us, we will guide you every step of the way. You can rest assured that your project will run smoothly, efficiently and within your budget.

SOPHISTICATED: years of real experience in Australia and abroad pursuing inspiration for a multitude of culturally diverse design ideas give us an edge and sophistication over our competitors.

WELLNESS ARCHITECTS: the positive power of wellness design can have a profound effect on the way you feel, work and live. Ask us about how your next project can be wellness inspired.
