Steffen Welsch Architects

Our projects – throughout Melbourne and country Victoria – vary in program, size and budget.

Each project provides comfort, character and beauty, and allows for current and future flexibility.

Our designs are affordable to construct and economical to operate. Our aim is to reduce the amount of resources required to construct, maintain and operate a building over its lifetime. We concentrate our efforts on cutting back consumption.

As hemp and rammed earth enthusiasts, we have built a number of projects in these materials including Northcote Hemp House, featured in Open House Melbourne, and our rammed earth house in north-east Victoria. Our House in House recently won the Houses Award for House in a Heritage Context and was shortlisted in the Victorian AIA awards. One of our favourite recent projects is the Printing Press, a warehouse conversion using simplified construction techniques and no-fuss materials to contain costs.

We’re a tight-knit team – Steffen, Donie, Lachlan, Israa and Henry – based in North Fitzroy. A Day in our Office looks like this.
