” Established in 2021, Couvaras Architects has been building a strong reputation for delivering environmentally sustainable structures that not only function well, but also deliver an element of fun. A firm with a history as a specialist in sustainable architecture, they continue to use a ‘green’ approach which involves a wide range of techniques and materials, utilising state-of-the-art technology to create innovative designs.” Website states.
With three studios situated in Brisbane’s Southbank Parklands, Couvaras Architects has grown rapidly into one of the most established firms in the industry. In 2021 they were named Gold Coast Supervisors Council for Design and Construction with standing reputation as one of Australia’s leading design and planning agencies. They have subsequently won several prestigious awards including the Queen Elizabeth Prize, Goldsmiths Awards, the Walkley Awards and the Walkley Foundation Design Award. The Company is committed to continually developing its core strengths and expanding its business through innovation and collaborative growth. With the constantly changing landscape of architecture, it has recognised the need to build on its existing skills and look towards the future by acquiring qualified staff, developing its website and considering different options when planning new structures.
The majority of architects working within the field of sustainable architecture are self-employed. They rely on independent financial arrangements to allow them to focus on the type of projects they wish to work on and receive full pay for their hard work. Some individuals are self-employed and others have small businesses running on a part time basis. Some of these employees are also employed by large commercial employers who have designed buildings in Brisbane’s Southbank Parklands area. This indicates that there is scope for growth within this exciting industry and the potential for growth in the future.
