Architectural Services

IRP Architects can advise you on the various aspects of building architecture, design, renovation, and construction. We operate across the Brisbane area, from new home designs in The Gap, to renovations in Ascot, to new commercial projects in Redcliffe.

Our innovation results from the amalgamation of sound design principles, integrated with state-of-the-art products and technology. Our team approach considers the reduction of future maintenance and total life-cycle costs. In today's climate, we recognise the importance of sustainable and environmentally aware design. Our latest projects have consistently achieved 6-star energy efficiency ratings.

Regardless of project scale, we acknowledge the need for our work to address each project's current constraints and embrace future potentials. The recurring issues of quality, time, and budget are inherent in every endeavor; we work with our clients to achieve their specific goals, despite challenges.

To assist our clients in visualizing their aspirations, we provide Design and Documentation in Full 3D rendering. Experience your design as it emerges from initial concept sketches, and refine it continuously with internal walk-throughs and external fly-throughs. Our software provides you with confidence and will expedite the decision-making process.


… a design uniquely yours emerging from those first tentative sketches on the back of an envelope; an architectural solution which encompasses your lifestyle, your environment and your dreams; a design cognisant of energy efficiency and sustainability which considers maintenance and total life cycle costs.

Selecting a Site

IRP Architects can provide advice on what the most suitable site will be for your future architecture project. We can advise on the town-planning processes, building requirements and design implications.

We are knowledgeable about the Brisbane area and what specific aspects must be taken into consideration with respect to the micro-climate, orientation, land profile, and local council regulatory restrictions.

Master Planning

IRP Architects can provide brief development and master planning solutions for your project. Our master planning service will ensure that your future commercial or residential developments will not be compromised.

Schematic Design

IRP Architects can provide architectural design concepts for your new project, based on your initial brief and future needs. The design is a collaborative process, and is constantly evolving as we review the pro’s and con’s of each scheme.


… your design through a 3D experience and direct your design as it emerges from initial concept sketches to making colour selections via internal walkthroughs and external fly-overs. Our software provides you with the confidence to expedite decision making and our innovation results from integrating sound design principles with state of the art products and technology.
