Christopher Polly Architect is an award winning design and ideas-focused architecture practice established by Christopher Polly in Sydney in late 2005. In the same year the practice was selected by the Australian Institute of Architects for the ‘Emerging Young Architects’ Houses Tour and it has been widely published, both locally and internationally.
The practice distils a holistic detail design and process-led approach in the delivery of highly creative and pragmatic architectural solutions that resonate conceptual rigour and material invention. A strong emphasis is placed on a critical synthesis of the opportunities and constraints of each site, context and client brief as a catalyst for uniquely appropriate design outcomes in response to place, landscape and patterns of use.
Christopher Polly engages with clients who share in the reward of accomplishing bold visions to enrich their daily lives, who prioritise quality over quantity, and who place value in achieving inventive and well crafted spaces that are meticulously detailed and finished.
The practice has extensive experience in the design and procurement of projects across varied scales and types, and has garnered a reputation for delivering design excellence for projects on often complex sites. It provides highly personalised architectural services to clients and is involved in all stages of each project – underscored by solid working relationships with consultants and builders. Projects encompass new houses, additions and alterations to existing houses, and boutique retail, restaurant and workplace environments.
