Discover the Unknown
Get to know our clients. Research and find out what we don’t know.


Think Ahead
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.
