Why 1618?

Alternatively known as the ‘Divine Proportion’, the number 1618 is directly inspired by the holistic relationship on individual factors within a whole. When simplified, the Golden Ratio can be presented as 1: 1.618. To us, the name 1618 represents mathematical and natural holism within our projects and brings forward the prioritisation of pristine accuracy and quality to our works.

Practice Philosophy

At 1618, we believe the role of an architect is so much more than merely designing structures:

We are committed to complete transparency and encourage an environment of mutual trust and communication. We care about our client’s success.

The practice offers versatile solutions to all our clients’ needs. Our strong portfolio of different building projects and clients reflects the diversity and level of service we offer. Clients are our most important partners.” A core value we take very seriously and demonstrate through our actions.

Our commitment is to provide a professional architectural and development service that fulfils the client’s brief and acknowledges the needs and responsibilities of all.

The practice seeks to provide a personal, efficient, and cost-effective service leading to creative, pragmatic and commercially aware solutions.

We continuously engage with our clients to understand their opportunities and challenges over the lifetime of our partnership together. We value meaningful collaboration and enjoy exploring possibilities for the future.

We believe in working with the client to ensure expectations are met, utilising innovative solutions, to meet specific objectives. Together, this fusion of intelligence and research allows us to not only generate new ideas but understand how best to apply them. It allows us to develop solutions that meet performance expectations, adapt to change and position our clients for success.
