iredale pedersen hook architects



Short description

iredale pedersen hook architects is an internationally acclaimed design practice based in Perth and Melbourne, Australia. The studio is renowned for its innovative approach across a very broad range of projects that are underpinned by critical thinking, stakeholder engagement and comprehensive project research. Since formation in 1999, iph architects has created an expansive and significant body of work throughout Australia. Working in urban, regional and remote locations, each of our projects embodies a unique design response to the landscape and to the context it occupies. We are motivated by a belief that all people should have access to excellent affordable design and have built a reputation for delivering projects with a focus of triple-bottom-line sustainable design - that is, environmental, social and economic sustainability. Our architecture is drawn from a landscape that is dominated by the horizon. In Australia the desert and the ocean operate as constant counterpoints to the occupation of land by built objects and our work shares an understanding of landscape within the pragmatics of context. We reject the idea of a ‘signature style’ to our architecture and seek to make a considered response to the specific and unique conditions that are presented by each project. iredale pedersen hook have won over 300 awards and has been exhibited throughout the world, we have been selected to represent Australia on four occasions at the pinnacle of international architecture exhibitions; The Venice Biennale. Some of our international awards include: AR Emerging Architecture Awards 2006 and 2008 AR House Award 2014 The Architecture of Necessity 2016 and 2019 World Architecture Festival Awards 2015, 2017, 2018 and 2019 AZ Social Good Awards 2016 and 2018 Architizer A+ Awards Special Honoree 2020, Awards 2014, 2016, 2018, 2019, 2020 Architecture MasterPrize 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 The Chicago Athenaeum International Awards 2013, 2016
