Our 8i Architects Team

In the modern architectural setting we have built a team who embody the the old school principles of being technically equipped to work with builders, provide a hands on experience, be dependable and easily contactable.

We assign an experienced project architect that fulfills all the needs of the project from start to finish. They are always supported by an experienced team that is integral to the project. Our experience ensures we have the capacity to manage projects up to $110 million in construction value.

We don't take shortcuts, we care deeply about what we do, and we want the process to be as painless and efficient as possible to get the best outcome for our client over the life of the asset.

Discover the Unknown

Good Design Thinking considers the task at hand as well as what is coming up and the whole context.


Details, Details, Details
Whether working on details or the big picture– attention to detail makes a difference.


Tell our clients like it is. Always be upfront. Say what we mean, mean what we say.


Design is Everywhere
There is opportunity to improve everyday life through design. Quality design is essential.


8i Architects

8i Architects is a Brisbane based architectural design practice specialising in innovative, functional and sustainable design solutions. Our focus is on design excellence, providing quality spaces that are unique to the site and the client’s needs.


I have worked with Charmaine, Hieu and the team at 8i Architects for the past 6 years. I can honestly say that if you want no nonsense, non-ego based, well thought through and sensible architecture then let 8i manage your project for you. 


In my opinion 8i are big enough to handle projects up to the value of around $100m but small enough to provide the level of service that you won't get from the larger architectural firms who will give your project to a junior architect to manage.
