Studio Tekton was established in 1998 with the intent of providing a responsive design service with a collaborative focus acknowledging building as a multi disciplinary activity requiring committed participants from client through to the design team and contractor. While Studio Tekton has a Queensland focus, we have worked on projects in Melbourne, Perth, Port Macquarie and internationally in the Maldives and Silverstar (Canada). Projects are equally varied ranging from domestic renovations to master planning, inquiry by design research to facilitating a community garden including outdoor pizza oven.
