Firm Profile

Led by directors Broderick Ely, Jonathon Boucher, and Andrew Piva, the B.E Architecture team is young, dynamic and multicultural, with a range of personal interests and specialities.

Members of the firm work closely with their clients, builders, and individual contractors to ensure that the building expresses the client it was built for and everything needed is in its place. The designs are quiet, yet strong creating a response that is appropriate to its surroundings with attention to materiality that ensures projects will continue to improve over the passage of time.

With more than 20 years of practice, B.E Architecture has built a body of work in various locations around Australia, with international commissions currently under development.

Our projects are deeply grounded in understanding of context and the user’s experience of the building so that they are meaningful and continue to be relevant over time. Our work has been recognised by numerous awards as well as being published widely both in Australia and overseas. The firm’s experience in creating sophisticated, timeless architecture has earned them the respect from peers and more importantly from our clients. B.E Architecture has a long history of excellence in architecture for residential and commercial spaces.
