FIFE CAPITAL | BEN FIFE, DIRECTOR
“I have worked with Richard on numerous projects over the past 20 years. I have found Richard to be an enthusiastic and genuine contributor on all projects we have worked on together. Richard is steadfastly focused on finding the best outcome for each design challenge. Fife Capital is currently working with Bureau on a complex large scale residential project in western Sydney. Bureau has brought a strong understanding of the local planning context and an innovative design approach to maximise the development outcomes and create a community with identity and a sense of place.
Richard provides lateral thinking and a client focussed approach to the concept design phase and is well supported by a team of architects producing quality documentation. Richard has always strived to optimise space efficiency where ever possible to ensure the architectural integrity of the concept design can be delivered at project completion. I have no hesitation in recommending Richard and his team.”

STOCKLAND | GAVIN TONNET, NATIONAL HEAD APARTMENTS MIXED USE & GENERAL MANAGER RESIDENTIAL
“Over many years I have developed a sound and successful working relationship with Bureau of Urban Architecture. They are professional and responsive, with significant experience in large and complex mixed use projects. As a team they pull together to deliver on time and, importantly, creatively to meet a market brief. They particularly understand the dynamic of feasibilities and always provide sufficient detail from the earliest ideas to progressively test viability as the design evolves. Bureau were selected initially due to their rigorous and commercial design background and education on a complex multi-faceted precinct challenge. Throughout the commission, the team responded with innovative and thoughtful options, sought feedback and responded promptly to meet our tight programs. Richard and his team are a pleasure to work with – professional, constructive, creative, solutions-oriented, hard-working and effective.”

They have demonstrated a thorough understanding of the site, clearly articulating a suite of superb design principles and have presented these convincingly to Council.
