ARM Architecture is an award-winning architecture, urban design and interior design practice. We work around Australia and are known for our scholarship and creativity. We enrich our design work by incorporating aspects of each project’s culture, environment, history and character as well as its purpose. The outcomes are individual and distinctive. Each could exist nowhere else, and for nobody else.

1010 La Trobe Street, Digital Harbour

This administration building is part of ARM’s masterplan for Digital Harbour’s technology-based community. It is aimed at start-up and research businesses in the IT industry.

Adelaide Festival Plaza Precinct Masterplan

This massive masterplanning project repairs one of Adelaide’s most important—yet flawed—urban places.

Albury Library/ Museum

This building houses the Albury region’s library, museum, community centre and IT facilities, all under one roof.

Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies

This is Australia’s leading centre for the research of our early Australian peoples.

Barak Building

This is the distinguished face of William Barak, the last traditional ngurungaeta (Elder) of the Wurundjeri-willam clan. From our apartment tower, his image oversees Melbourne’s Swanston Street axis.

Elizabeth Quay

Elizabeth Quay is a new waterfront precinct that unites central Perth with the Swan River. Its focus is a 730m terraced promenade surrounding a newly formed inlet, and a completely new island created by excavating the land that joined it to the shore.

Firbank Grammar

ARM has completed projects on both campuses of this Melbourne private school. Both have historic buildings that have inspired our new designs for children’s technology-based learning spaces.

Geelong Library and Heritage Centre

This is a busy community gathering place and techno-resource centre for residents of one of Australia’s fastest growing regional cities.

Hamer Hall

Hamer Hall is Melbourne’s main concert hall. It is the home of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and the premier venue for visiting orchestras and other acoustic and amplified music.

Innovation Building, Digital Harbour

This was the first building completed from our Docklands Digital Harbour Masterplan. It is an incubator hub for new enterprises in the IT industry, as well as the research and development components of larger organisations such as Telstra.

Joondalup Performing Arts and Cultural Facility

ARM won a 2014 design competition for this new building in suburban Perth. It is currently at schematic design stage.

M24 Apartments

The site of this small apartment building was originally the home of the Golden West Aerated Water Company, established around 1902, whose original clay bottles are now rare collectors’ items. The idea of aerated water inspired the bubbly façade.

Marion Cultural Centre

Adelaide’s Marion Cultural Centre is on a busy corner surrounded by arterial roads and next to Westfield Marion shopping centre.

Melbourne Recital Centre

The Melbourne Recital Centre has revolutionised classical music in its city. It has the acoustic and architectural qualities of the great old-world concert halls but on a smaller, chamber-music scale.

Momentum Apartments

MOMENTUM is a dowdy old 1970s office block that we have recycled into a multi-residential building. It is in inner-suburban South Melbourne.

MTC Southbank Theatre

MTC is Australia’s oldest professional theatre company, yet the Southbank Theatre is its first permanent performance home and headquarters.

National Museum of Australia

The National Museum of Australia is one of ARM’s most inventive, daring and controversial buildings.

National Museum of Australia Admin Wing

The National Museum of Australia is one of ARM’s most inventive, daring and controversial buildings. ARM and Peck von Hartel Trethowan Architects jointly won the project in a 1997 international design competition. NMA occupies 11 hectares of Canberra’s Acton Peninsula, on Lake Burley Griffin.

One East Melbourne

One East Melbourne is a luxury 19-storey apartment tower plus a three-level commercial building holding 6000 m2 of office space.

Orbis Apartments

Orbis illustrates our philosophy that an apartment building should contribute to the urban life surrounding it, not just exist for its residents.

Parklands

Parklands will serve as the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games Athletes’ Village before becoming the Gold Coast’s newest suburb. It is the biggest urban renewal project ever undertaken on the Gold Coast.

Peninsula Link

Peninsula Link celebrates the art of driving. The freeway is a 15-minute ride through multiple character zones and it features a public art program.

Perth Arena

Here is a new attitude to stadia. This major sports and entertainment venue is not just a concrete box where mass audiences and spectators are herded in and out. It is a work of design whose story and history are drawn from the Western Australian identity.

RMIT Storey Hall and Green Brain

Our two green projects for RMIT distinguish the campus precinct from the rest of Melbourne’s CBD.

Shrine of Remembrance Redevelopment

The Shrine of Remembrance is Melbourne’s most visible and poignant war memorial. ARM’s additions have expanded it from purely a monument to an exhibition space and education facility. Our designs are full of references and symbols—overt and otherwise—to Australians at war.

St Kilda Triangle Masterplan

The historic and richly cultural Melbourne suburb of St Kilda has a vocal and passionate community. For our masterplan to be feasible, accepted and built, it was essential that St Kilda residents be involved in a genuine and collaborative way.

St. Collins Lane

St. Collins Lane is a new high-end retail precinct in Melbourne’s CBD. It comprises four floors of luxury retail and dining, both formal and casual.

The Face

The Face is at the very heart of St Kilda’s beachside retail, hospitality and tourist precinct.

Arts West is the University of Melbourne’s new Faculty of Arts building.

Victorian Desalination Plant

The Desalination Plant is an insurance policy for our most precious resource.

Wintergarden

Our wintergarden transforms an interstitial space into something useful, social and beautiful. It has a glass roof to keep the aggressive northerlies out, and a view to die for.
