  • Who are we?

    Mark Lawler Architects offer architectural services for residential and commercial buildings in Newcastle, the Hunter Valley, Hawks Nest, Port Stephens and the Central Coast.

  • What can we do for you?

    Our projects include extensions, houses, apartments, offices, community buildings and interior fitouts.

We are committed to designing functional, efficient and stimulating architecture for all project types. Our directive is simple – to work with our clients and bring to life inspiring spaces for living, work and enjoyment.

Architectural design is a process of creative problem solving. This requires analytical skills to firstly define the problems to be solved. Then, we use our design skills to propose creative solutions to address the identified problems. The design process is open-ended and is a path of discovery for all involved.

Good communication between the Client and the Architect is the key. The desired outcomes in terms of quality, accommodation, cost and timing must be scoped and clearly defined. The Architect uses this information to develop a unique design to satisfy these objectives.

We pride ourselves on being one of the region’s most experienced architectural firms, having contributed to Newcastle architecture over the last 30 years. We are one of Newcastle’s most innovative firms. Through our continuing research and professional development, we constantly update our knowledge of current developments so that our Architecture is continually improving and evolving for the benefit of our Clients.

From large scale commercial, residential and office developments to private homes and renovations, Mark Lawler Architects adopt a creative and rational approach to providing both feasible solutions and outstanding experiences for every client.

All projects receive the individual attention of the Directors and Project Architects to ensure the most appropriate solution and attention to detail are realised.

Whatever your needs, we have a solution for all types of projects. With a house, you may be looking to enhance your lifestyle or achieve high capital gain. For a commercial development, the goal will usually be larger financial returns and economical construction. For all clients, we offer efficient planning, creative design and highquality construction. This approach ensures that the outcome will meet, if not exceed, your expectations.

Perhaps you already have some design concepts in mind, or would like to discuss some ideas. Even if you have no clear idea of where to start, the realisation of your project begins with the first contact. Please call us on (02) 4942 5222, or contact us via email.

We have worked with a variety of clients, tailoring a building solution to suit their precise needs.
