Guy Williams Architects
Guy Williams Architects was established in 1992 and morphed into ‘gwarchitects’ in 2000. Over this time our aim has always been to provide an efficient and progressive multi-disciplinary practice based on traditional principles and personal service. We have the capability to handle small delicate projects, through to the larger and more complex, and have experience across the broad range in-between. This begins with a solid grounding in quality Residential Architecture, particularly in prestigious executive housing in both contemporary and colonial styles. Our expertise extends further to multi-functional Educational and Sports & Leisure facilities, Commercial/Retail and Industrial complexes, and includes Interior Design, Fitout and hard landscaping design. With over 25 years architectural experience, both in in SE Queensland and overseas, we have developed and maintained a respected and admired working relationship with satisfied clients, consultants and local building authorities. We offer high quality services and skills ranging from feasibility and site selection, with cost-conscious and budget sensitive design, contract documentation and administration, through to graphics, material and colour consultation. We feel that this combination of complimentary skills, competent staff and technical support has produced an efficient Planning, Design and Management team with excellent experience and expertise to successfully complete the most demanding project.

Clayfield College PE Centre
Originally the local ten-pin bowling alley, the client purchased the site with the view of developing a new state-of-the-art multi-level Sports and Education facility. We worked closely with them to formulate a Brief which specifically met their current and future needs. From this we created a design which satisfied all end users, and implemented the construction process accordingly. As such, the end product was testimony to the effort put into this process and a final outcome was acheived which truely complimented the standing of the school within the local community.
UQ Sport Tennis Centre
Seeing a lack of this type of up-market sporting facility within the local community, we were commissioned by the University of Queensland to create a new ‘state-of-the-art’ tennis complex, specifically designed to compliment their existing facilities. Sleek and modern, yet set amongst the landscpae to provide a series of open and inviting spaces, this dynamic building was designed to fill this void and create a feeling of vibrance and continuity for this part of the campus. This new Centre heralded the beginning of a new era in the integration of commercial activity and student sport on the campus.
Having purchased the existing 1930’s ‘Tudor’ style residence, the client wanted a high-quality renovation to compliment the aesthetic of the exisitng house, yet be modern and comfortable for the family. The design was very sympathetic to this, creating a wonderful series of useable spaces, complete with open pool deck and gazebo, walk-in wine cellar and contemporary horizon-edged pool.
