Forever, is our commitment to respect place, people and culture—and passion for the legacy of our work.

Place : Respect for built legacy

Architecture outlives lifetimes. The work we undertake has lifelong implications for the places that are built upon and the places that materials are extracted from. That is why design is so fundamentally important. Care must be taken to ensure that the finished result will endure the harsh Australian conditions and deliver the maximum benefit for our client and future generations.

People : Respect for our team

Andever have a set of strong guiding principles for practice. We see ourselves as advocates of great design as well as for diversity and equity in the architecture profession. We stand firmly against the exploitation of any kind and ensure our staff are always remunerated fairly in accordance with the industry award rates. As patrons of architectural services, we think you should know that your fees are being used ethically.

Culture : Respect for Country

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We are committed to seeking knowledge and finding ways to respectfully connect our work to Country. Our office in Carlton is located upon the lands of the Wurundjeri people. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging. We would like to extend that appreciation to all First Nations people today who continue to fight for their sovereignty. This land was never ceded.
