Firm Profile

Led by directors Andrew Piva, Jonathon Boucher, and Broderick Ely, 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 finished building expresses the client it for whom it was built. 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 time. With more than 20 years of practice, B.E Architecture has amassed a notable body of work in various locations around Australia, with international commissions currently under development.

Our projects are deeply grounded in understanding context and user experience so that the buildings are meaningful and continue to be relevant over time. Numerous awards have recognised our work and been 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.
