TAG Architects is a multi-award winning Australian architectural practice specialising in high quality, innovative and environmentally responsible projects. TAG Architects create well designed, appropriately scaled and constructed architecture which responds to the client programme and contributes intelligently to the built environment and associated landscape.
Based in Perth, Western Australia, founding Directors, Jurg Hunziker and Michael Spight have collaborated together for over 25 years and share a passion for delivering architectural solutions which “make a difference”. A significant number of projects undertaken have been in the Public Realm requiring a substantial commitment to social issues beyond the scope normally expected of design consultants.
TAG Architects has been recognised in the architectural community as a leading design practice delivering innovative, sustainable and cost effective built solutions.
The practice currently works in a wide range of building types, including projects in educational, justice, custodial, residential, and commercial and heritage fields. Works undertaken by TAG Architects in the past ten years have continued to increase in scale and complexity.
We have gained a reputation in the design and construction industry for producing very consistent and concise design documentation, resulting in higher quality outcomes. A number of our projects have required detailed resolution of very complex programmes on remote and challenging sites.
Our design ethos embraces a holistic approach to design, and as such reflects a set of ideas and attitudes that go beyond simple aesthetics to incorporate all aspects of architectural design. TAG Architects do not have a “house style” but rather prefer to treat each design task with a unique contextual response that is generated by the many factors influencing architecture and our built environment.
Our work has won numerous design excellence awards through the Australian Institute of Architects, including Western Australia’s highest award, the prestigious George Temple Poole award in 2005. Similarly, TAG has, in association with iredale pedersen hook Architects, been awarded the 2013 “International Architecture Award by The Chicago Athenaeum, and the 2013 Wallace Greenham Sustainable Architecture Award by the Australian Institute of Architects.
