Established in Melbourne in 1964 Jackson Architecture is an international practice with offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Shenyang and London.
Jackson Architecture has gained an international reputation for high quality consultation based on an ability to synthesise the conflicting demands of creativity, community planning, cost effectiveness and quality design.
Jackson Architecture is an interdisciplinary design practice of professional architects, urban, and interior designers. The practice seeks creative solutions to opportunities and problems in the built environment and is motivated by the desire to provide sensitive and stimulating environments that articulate and facilitate all aspects of human encounter and endeavour. We see architecture as both a visionary design medium, and also as a problem solving discipline to which our diverse architectural talents contribute-philosophic and technical; caring and sensible; imaginative and operational. Buildings must be useable, efficient and cost effective.
The practice seeks an architecture that expresses time and space, function and originality. Daryl Jackson is passionate about architecture and keen to share his enthusiasm and ideas with the Jackson Architecture team, always seeking to expand design intelligence through a process of exploration and resolution. The working method is prepositional; formal ideas are discussed with clients and the relevant authorities; evaluation and testing is welcomed as a fundamental part of the process. This way of working ensures a distinct identity is established for each project.
Our process is one of leadership where we work constructively with our clients and other project stakeholders to reveal, explore, conciliate and express their diverse project objectives, whilst balancing them with community interests and statutory obligations. For us each project is unique and demands an exceptional response. The result is functional and symbolic, conveying the idiosyncrasies of the complex parts through an ordered and synthesised whole.
Public and peer recognition of the quality of Daryl Jackson’s services to architecture has resulted in the award of the RAIA Gold Medal and numerous awards, including the prestigious Sir Zelman Cowen Award (the Australian national award for the most outstanding architectural work) on three occasions.
It is the application of the practice’s technical and professional knowledge that allows Jackson Architecture to deliver value, and exceed the aspirations, objectives, and quality expectations of our clients. To achieve this we place great emphasis on developing close and cooperative relationships with out clients.
The intrinsic qualities that set Jackson Architecture apart from our competitors are that we:
- Provide a high level of personal service from our directors and associates
- Have demonstrated ability to manage major projects
- Are focused on project outcomes
- Have empathy with the clients needs for security and advice
- Accept responsibility for project performance and quality
- Have personnel with first hand experience of major projects
- Understand the concepts and relationships between risks and performance
"The essential purpose of architecture is to celebrate human presence. Architecture's role is to affirm where we have come from and to invoke a vision of where we are going. It must also reinforce and enhance our emotional and physical presence in symbolic and functional systems of expression."
